McConnell Initiatives

McConnell has founded or co-founded numerous initiatives, in the past, with the aim of making positive change in certain issue areas. Many of these initiatives are no longer active, and they no longer guide our funding, investing, convening or other activities. For inquiries about our current work, please consult our Strategic Direction announcement.

Click below find out about initiatives dating back to 1998 (ArtsSmarts) and all the way up to the present (Cities for People, Re-Code, Sustainable Food Systems, the McConnell Reconciliation Initiative, and our work to help build a net-zero carbon economy), along with associated resources and summaries of what has been learned along the way.
