MN Wild Charity of the Month Program

In partnership with the Minnesota Wild, we are the sponsor of the Minnesota Wild Charity of the Month Program. Throughout the NHL season, we feature a new charity each month. This program provides opportunities and exposure to important charities that would otherwise not receive.

Being involved is embedded into the culture here at Innovative. We value philanthropic effort and give back to those around us through our local partnerships and charity work in the community. One of our longest running community programs has been our partnership with the Minnesota Wild, sponsoring the Charity of the Month program. Let’s look back at the amazing charitable organizations that were featured during the 2021-2022 season!
