Innovation Depot is well known for its successes as an incubator for new businesses. Now even more entrepreneurs can get a good start as Innovation Depot completes unfinished space within its walls on First Avenue North downtown.
The Community Foundation was an early investor in Innovation Depot, using Community Funds contributed by donors throughout our history. The latest partnership combines Community Funds with partner grants from three Advised Fund donors through our Giving Together program for a grant totaling $75,000.
As James McCrary, Vice President Grants and Evaluation, explains, this grant allows us to leverage Community Funds to do even more for one of the key Results of our strategic grantmaking, making communities sustainable, livable and vibrant. In 2011, Community Foundation donors made gifts totaling more than $950,000 to support this and the other three parts of the Results Framework.
You can support our community too, whether you want to focus on healthy lives, education, economic security or community life. Check out the Results listed among our Donate Now choices and join us or explore our website to find out how we focus our work to drive positive change.
