The Fetzer Institute is dedicated to helping build the spiritual foundation for a loving world. We do this by funding innovators and organizations that research spirituality, engage in individual and societal spiritual transformation, and build the spiritual infrastructure for the future, especially in service of our current program areas of Democracy, Education, Faith & Spirituality, and Organizational Culture. We believe in the power of ideas and we convene leaders to explore, discover, sharpen, and publish on spiritual transformation. And we work with allies with shared values within philanthropy to achieve greater impact.

We invite you to explore a full list of our partners and projects since 2015 in the database below.
