We’re pleased to share some of the success stories from our portfolio of incredible Programs and Greenhouse Initiatives. Some of these Programs and Greenhouse Initiatives have formed their own non-profit as the next phase of their mission or successfully completed their goals.

Successful Programs and Greenhouse Initiatives that have experienced significant growth and continue to follow their ongoing mission may part from the Marion Institute nest to form their own independent non-profit organization. Alternatively, upon completion of a goal – such as a film, book or curriculum – a Program or Greenhouse Initiative no longer needs the Marion Institute to incubate the work as it is now out in the world!

We are blessed to have worked with so many amazing groups and individuals and are proud of the vast and varied root-cause solution accomplishments resulting from our partnership.
