Vision:

American society is characterized by a culture of respect for all faiths and an appreciation of the importance of an inner life nurtured by spiritual practice, compassion and service beyond self.

Strategies:

  • Support non-sectarian, interfaith and progressive non-profit organizations that develop strong, authentic leaders who will strive to build a more civil and compassionate society and promote interfaith harmony.
  • Support a limited number of national programs that nurture mindfulness, spiritual and contemplative practices.
  • Support a limited number of 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:

  • Non-sectarian, interfaith, inclusive and progressive organizations that provide authentic leadership training opportunities to clergy and lay people who lead organizations.
  • Non-sectarian, interfaith, inclusive and progressive organizations that nurture and support the spiritual practices of individuals and families.
  • Select organizations that promote and teach mindfulness, meditation and other contemplative practices.
  • Nonprofit media organizations and programs that educate and inform the public about progressive, inclusive values and practices.
