Support Ingenuity's Year-Round Initiatives!

At Ingenuity Cleveland, we cultivate and nurture our city’s most valuable assets: its community of passionate and curious minds.

Whatever your vision is for the future, we can almost guarantee that creativity, innovation, and collaboration is a critical consideration.

With your support, Ingenuity will continue to generate a multitude of creative opportunities.  In 2021, we will:

  • Award 10 microgrants through our Ignite! Impact Awards to women, minorities and others underrepresented in entrepreneurship
  • Support eighteen IngenuityLabs Incubator tenants with space, tools and resources needed to launch and grow small businesses and creative projects
  • Alongside community partners, advance messages from Artists of Color in response to the racial equity and social justice movement through the ongoing #VoicesofCLE project
  • Host monthly Neighbor Night events, built to strengthen, and better serve our immediate neighborhood, creative community, and beyond. These intergenerational events are themed with hands-on, peer-to-peer learning, informal networking, skill acquisition, and access to community resources
  • Continue to promote opportunities to our network of 300+ Ingeneers - which is a creative collective of people who vision and build large-scale collaborative work throughout the community
  • Hold a neighborhood scaled Festival
  • In partnership with Karamu House and Downtown Cleveland Alliance, alongside 30+ supporting organizations, Ingenuity is collaborating to create Cleveland’s first Juneteenth Freedom Fest. The group’s aim is to educate, celebrate, and activate participants around the history of African American culture
