A FOUNDATION OF FRIENDS
in a Spirit of Philanthropy
The Innermost House Foundation is a philanthropic organization inspired by the "voluntary associations" so much admired by early observers of the American experiment, where private individuals organized the conversation of civic life together to raise the level of cultural opportunity available to all.
Our living foundations consist in the friends who voluntarily give their time, counsel, resources and example to the "dream too wild" of an American idealism renewed at its roots. Through them, we stand on foundations as deep as history and as wide as the world. We are a conversation of friends, dedicated to a living ideal.
