Vision:

An America characterized by respect for all faiths and appreciation for the inner life nurtured by spiritual practice, compassion and service beyond self.

Strategies:

  • Support non-sectarian, inter-faith and progressive religious organizations that develop strong, authentic leaders who will strive to build a more civil and compassionate society.
  • Support leaders of national programs that nurture mindfulness, spiritual and contemplative practices.
  • Support a limited number of credible established media organizations with a national and international reach that increase public awareness of the values and inclusiveness of progressive Christianity.

Types of organizations we fund:

  • Working in Minnesota, Dallas, Northern San Francisco Bay Area / Marin County, or Vail Valley
  • Non-sectarian, interfaith, inclusive and progressive faith organizations
  • Select organizations that promote and teach mindfulness, meditation and other contemplative practices
  • Non-profit media organizations and programs that educate and inform the public about progressive, inclusive values and practices
