Innoweave offers grants to support groups of organizations as they develop Collective Impact initiatives.

 Launch Funding

Organizations that have participated in an Innoweave Collective Impact Workshop 2 will be eligible to apply for up to $40,000 of funding to help them launch their initiative. Groups which are clear on both the goals that they hope to achieve with Collective Impact and how they can use the resources to advance their plan are invited to apply for Launch Funding. Before application for Launch Funding, groups should explore Planning coaching. Planning coaching is designed to help get groups reach for launch funding. Groups which have completed Workshop 2 will also automatically be considered for Planning Coaching based on the work they submit following Workshop 2.

Organizations that have completed workshop 2 are invited to apply for Launch funding following the workshop. Organizations that have not completed a workshop are welcome to submit an expression of interest (see guide here).
