How We Work

Indigo Impact Initiative Helps Communities


Founder Sheri Smith believes that education needs to extend beyond the classroom and into the community at large. Indigo Impact Initiative (I3) inspires schools, businesses and communities to partner and collaborate together to create a better future for all. Here are some of our initiatives:




Connecting Communities to Resources

Once community leaders identify I3 as a catalyst for change, I3 helps to cultivate funding, specialists and open-source resources in key areas of need.

Bringing Businesses and Schools Together

I3 partners with community institutions and businesses to join together and bring about positive change.
