In 2016, the Foundation transitioned its Social Change Fund priorities into two separate funds. One of those was the new Innovation Fund.
Through the Innovation Fund, the Foundation provides general operating support to organizations that drive gender equity in Minnesota. Because gender inequality looks different in every community, we use our Intersectional Lens Framework™ to look at how gender, race, place (geography), and equity (class, age, ability, LBTQ, immigration status) intersect to help identify the most innovative solutions to build greater gender equity.
Priority will be given to organizations that ensure women’s safe and healthy lives.
