Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Southwest Initiative Foundation

Hutchinson, Minn.



The foundation serves a catalyst for social and economic growth in southwest Minnesota and as a fiscal sponsor for Clean Up the River Environment, a grassroots organization seeking to restore and protect the Upper Minnesota River watershed. This two-year grant supports the Arts & Environment Sense of Place-Based Community Economic Development Program, an initiative that uses the arts to raise community awareness of river-quality issues.
