Grants ranging from $2,000 to $30,000 to North Idaho nonprofit organizations, governmental units, and Tribes for community benefit activities in Bonner and Boundary Counties. Funding is intended to address a variety of program areas, including health and wellbeing, economic opportunity, arts and culture, education and youth development, and quality of life.
Health and Wellbeing:
Conditions in the places where people live, learn, work and play affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. Innovia Foundation partners with nonprofit organizations to improve these conditions, known as social determinants of health, and promote good health for all.
Whether it’s providing job skills training for refugees or developing a commercial kitchen for local entrepreneurs, Innovia Foundation works with nonprofit partners to build prosperity for local families, businesses and communities.
Arts and Culture:
The arts bring creativity and joy to communities. The Foundation look for ways to create vibrant and accessible cultural and enrichment experiences for all.
Education and Youth Development:
Innovia Foundation supports nonprofit organizations providing access to learning opportunities for all ages – from early childhood reading programs to college campus site visits for first generation college students.
Quality of Life:
A well-planned community is rich with spaces that foster a sense of connectedness and belonging. Whether these are busy meeting spaces, like public parks and libraries, or remote walking trails meandering through a land conservation project, Innovia Foundation partners with nonprofits to make sure these spaces exist today and for future generations.
