SSIR highlights South Wood County, Incourage

Together with other foundation leaders from across the nation, Incourage CEO Kelly Ryan was invited to author a piece as part of a Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) 11-week series, produced in partnership with Mission Investors Exchange. SSIR describes this series as one that is exploring what’s next in impact investing and what we can learn from some of the most innovative foundations. As Kelly shared in her blog, it is a privilege to be published as part of this group and to present a rural, place-based perspective from “Middle America”. Read Kelly’s piece “Increasing Impact: People and Place at the Center” here! See the 11-week series here.
