Investments in local opportunities have the potential to attract new resources to our region. We’re taking the lead with our Impact Investments.

Our community is full of good ideas and opportunities for change - so much so that our grantmaking resources can’t keep up. We got creative with a portion of our endowed assets and invested them locally as low-interest loans. Our investments are drawing attention to our region, empowering innovators to meet community needs that aren’t met by the existing marketplace.
