Inspire Mishawaka

Cultivating Social and Economic Growth

Inspire Mishawaka was founded in February 2019 as an initiative of the Mishawaka Business Association. Inspire Mishawaka has since grown into its own, independent 501c3 nonprofit community organization. We are continually seeking partnerships with local businesses, nonprofit groups, residents, and visitors to our area.

Current partnerships include the City of Mishawaka, Mishawaka Parks Department, Mishawaka Historic Preservation Commission, Mishawaka Business Association, Visit South Bend/Mishawaka, Indiana Arts Commission, C2 Your Health Women’s Initiative Inc., Wealth in Motion Consulting LLC, and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs in our pursuit toward Main Street America accreditation.
