Make an Impact ... Be a Donor!

During 2022-23 ... 

What exactly does your donation support? 

Your support helps K-12 students access a broad array of regional enrichment experiences, such as student conferences, competitions and other career exploration opportunities ... and keeps costs for schools and families affordable.


These events are making an impact! 

We kick off this fall with the Southwest Minnesota Career Expo, sponsored by the SW MN Workforce Development Board and the Southwest Initiative Foundation. The event is September 26 in Worthington and September 27 in Marshall. 


The Conference for Young Artists, sponsored by the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council, follows on October 25 at Southwest Minnesota State University.


The Photography Competition (December 1) and Junior High Knowledge Bowl Sub-Regionals (December 15 and December 18) bring us up to the holiday break, with the JHKB Super Regional on January 3, 2024.
