Purpose and Activities

Giving to empower those whose vision for humanity and the planet is democratic, fair and environmentally sound; giving for grassroots organizations and projects whose work reflects compassion, consciousness and commitment; giving on an international approach to grantmaking, awarding many of its grants in South America, especially in Brazil. The planet's delicate ecological situation is a challenge to which the foundation responds by directing a significant portion of grants to environmental projects, particularly those that help raise awareness of the complex issues involved. Projects organized by women or that evoke women's transformative potential are encouraged. Communities that nurture the social, psychological and spiritual dimensions of the individual are favored.
