Renewal's Investment

Renewal helped attract other support, as well as offered professional expertise and guidance, towards bringing forth Hollyhock’s fullest potential in meeting its original mission and vision. With strategic support from Renewal, Hollyhock became a charitable foundation.

The 45 partners decided to donate 100% of their ownership of the land, buildings and name to the new Hollyhock Foundation. This initiative was developed to enhance the long-term stability and growth of this venerable educational retreat centre.

Renewal has supported and delivered the Social Venture Institute at Hollyhock since 1996. SVI is part of the Social Innovation Conference Series at Hollyhock.
