The Benter Foundation was founded in 2007 to support the leaders, organizations and ideas that help communities and individuals thrive.
Our grantmaking focus will continue to evolve as we learn together with our grantees and other partners. We invite you to follow this work as it unfolds.
Good ideas that make good cities great originate in different places. Sometimes they involve technology: Smartphone APPs that reveal open parking spaces in real time or enable citizens to share issues that need attention. Often these ideas start simply and grow to scale. Frequently, they begin with individuals or within institutions.
