Initiative fund

The social enterprise foundation “Iniciatyvos fondas” (Initiative Fund) was established in 2007 by Invalda INVL to encourage activity of a socially responsible nature and organise a variety of programmes for different social groups. Most of the programmes focus on boosting knowledge and education levels. Particular attention is given to helping integrate people from the most remote areas of Lithuania into a more vibrant community.

The foundation organises large-scale integrated programmes which encourage diverse groups in society to show independent initiative and actively contribute to the growth of Lithuania’s economy and to the creation of a harmonious society. The priorities of the Initiative Fund can vary from year to year.

In 2007 the Initiative Fund joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative, which encourages businesses to implement their strategies and carry out their activities in accord with 10 principles of social responsibility in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. The primary task of the Global Compact is to encourage and promote corporate social responsibility and fair markets.
