Innovia Foundation works closely with nonprofit organizations and others throughout the region to identify and respond to a wide range of community issues and opportunities. This might be as complex as collaborating with community leaders on a long-range plan for neighborhood preservation, or as basic as funding a program to provide shoes for children from low-income families. In all cases, Innovia Foundation looks to fund solutions that will create measurable, positive change in our region.
Columbia County Children's Fund
The Columbia County Children's Fund was established as a permanent legacy in 1984 by family members of Frances Broughton Boyd Milham of Dayton, Washington. The fund supports organizations in Columbia County, Washington that provide educational enrichment and special needs programs, guidance, counseling and therapy to children and their families, as well as medical and dental services and supplies for disadvantaged children.
The Columbia County Children’s Fund provides support to organizations within Columbia County. Applications must address one of the following program areas:
- Educational enrichment and special needs programs, with preference given to elementary school-aged children.
- Guidance, counseling and therapy to children and their families.
- Medical and dental services and/or supplies (glasses, hearing aids, braces) for disadvantaged children.
