Your Foundation to the Ideal Life

The Ideal Foundation is the grantmaking division of Into the Ideal, a growth-mindset organization, focused on the application of the “IGOT This” Framework.

The Ideal Foundation “IGOT This” Grant was created by Into the Ideal to empower organizations that exemplify a Growth Mindset, and Deliberate Practice.

A portion of Into the Ideal’s revenue goes into The Ideal Foundation in order to provide grants and to provide in-kind services to grant recipients in the community.

Our Desire

Partner with non-profits to help them in their deliberate practice of goal setting

Setbacks and failures are a natural part of the learning process… You’ve Got This!

Organizations with a growth mindset embrace challenges as opportunities for learning. They’re not afraid of making mistakes because they see them as valuable opportunities to learn and grow.

We’re here to help! The Ideal Foundation “IGOT This” Grant provides an excellent opportunity for you and your organization to obtain the necessary resources to get your life under control.

Small Tasks, Large Impact!
