BlueSky invests in organizations and innovations solving big problems.

Who We Are

BlueSky is a network of partner organizations: non-profits, ventures funds, start-ups, and entrepreneur support organizations. BlueSky Network exists to support those working on some of the biggest issues of our time: Climate Change, Housing Insecurity, and Equitable Entrepreneurship. By moving quickly, investing with conviction, and building a broad network of thought leaders – we seek to unlock new potential. Recognizing the importance of both philanthropic engagement and equity investments, BlueSky is not limited to traditional foundation grant cycles, nor a traditional family office structure.

We believe that well-loved, well used, and beautifully designed public parks are a necessity, not a luxury, for thriving 21st century urban regions. We also believe that the iconic Ohio River Falls, and its adjacent shoreline, offer a unique landscape for a dynamic world-class public park for active recreation, passive contemplation, spirited community gatherings, and wildlife conservation.


21st Century Parks' mission is to serve as stewards entrusted to create and preserve park lands that reflect the needs and values of our whole community.
