Innovia Foundation: 'This is Why'

Innovia Foundation, one of the leading philanthropic organizations in the Inland Northwest, awarded more than $81 million in grants and scholarships to help communities and better the lives of those who live here. Innovia celebrates the impact their donors, supporters, and community partners make on the region with an annual reception. This year, COVID-19 required the organization to rethink the annual reception in a virtual world. They selected us and Hamilton Studio to promote and produce a safe, socially distanced virtual celebration.

Klündt Hosmer developed the theme This is Why, designed both email and printed invitations, outlined the event, created set graphics, and worked with the Hamilton crew and Innovia staff to produce the one-hour event. The presentation featured a performance by Grammy award-winner Zuill Bailey; video success stories; a keynote by author and GivingTuesday co-founder, Henry Timms; and a special performance of This is Why, an original composition by Karli Ingersoll.

The virtual event enabled Innovia Foundation to recap the year’s successes despite challenges while thanking the generous supporters who make Innovia’s critical work possible. Following the event, we designed and produced their 2020 Annual Report as well as their 2020 Holiday card. (And a chocolate bar wrap, still waiting for our samples on that one!)
