Synergy Center

The Telligen Community Initiative Synergy Center is a 6,800-square-foot, multi-tenant, collaborative office project. The Synergy Center brings together health-focused, nonprofit organizations sharing a modern office space and resources funded by Telligen Community Initiative.

This Central Iowa-based facility supports eight nonprofits that advance social determinants of health in a myriad of creative and effective ways. We have subsequently funded similar work in other TCI states over time that mirrors this investment to support capacity building of multiple health nonprofit collaborators in ways other than traditional project support funding.
