Support A Project



Founded in 1998 by a group of civic leaders headed by Linda Hawes Clever, MD, RENEW is a nonprofit that helps individuals in groups rekindle motivation, restore energy, and move ahead. RENEW provides opportunities for people to work together to analyze circumstances and develop approaches and solutions so they can work and live with more focus, resilience, and even joy.

The organization’s custom-designed programs help individuals integrate life, work, and good health.

RENEW staff and volunteers work primarily with health care professionals and also with nonprofit executives, boards, and volunteers. They lead seminars and workshops in universities, hospitals, clinics, medical practices, and national organizations, offering data and insights, engendering confidence and co-operation, and enlivening purpose.


“Without Community Initiatives, California would not see the impact of hundreds of beneficial projects. They are an important part of our nonprofit landscape.”
