Contributions from our generous donors allow Southwest Initiative Foundation to invest in people, businesses, communities, organizations and projects. We leverage resources and connections to help our partners grow and improve.

  • Loans
    Because we’re a type of hybrid community foundation, Southwest Initiative Foundation also makes loans to qualifying businesses. We’re a gap lender, which means we partner with banks and other lending partners through our Business Finance Loan Program. And, we’re a leading microlending organization, supporting entrepreneurs with start-up and self-employment opportunities through our Microenterprise Loan Program.
  • Regional Economic Development
    Economic growth is key to our mission–and our region’s success. We work with business and community leaders to promote regional industries like food and agriculture, manufacturing, bioscience and renewable energy.
  • Grants
    We award grants to nonprofit organizations, schools, government agencies to support programs and projects in our region.
