How We Do It

We draw our practices from Wisdom Christianity and modern social movements for justice. These practices support inner transformation and allow us to follow our deepest inner promptings into real-world action.

Personal Stories

“One of my mantras from Tilden Edwards is “money is an icon and an energy of God that we are called to circulate with joy.” In our society money has become an idol.  To call it an icon means it is a portal for the energy and love of God to move into the world.  I am not just holding that as an abstract idea.  The ability to say I want to give $50,000 to this hospital has created so much joy in me.  And it has created so much joy in the people who are receiving it.”

“The day I left Haiti, I got on a 90-minute flight to Miami. From there I caught a three-hour flight to New York and then drove two hours to my family’s summer home in the Hamptons, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country. In one day, in other words, I went from one of the poorest areas of the Western Hemisphere to one of the richest. It was disorienting and disturbing to realize where I stood in the global family. What could I do?”

“Our retreat group was thinking about funding a micro business in Rwanda. I said that someone had to put in the seed money. Helen and I decided that we would be the seed money. That was the beginning.  It was so freeing.  It was so easy.  It had nothing to do with what I gave; it was the gift that I received. The gift was fully coming from the Christ within me. The part of me that said, “you don’t have enough, be careful” felt safe through the incredible love of Christ.”

“I had been an investment banker and started thinking about the meaning of my work and the purpose of all the money that was being processed. I wondered, “What impact does all this money have in people’s lives?” I ended up having a mystical experience while praying on the subway which jarred me into realizing that I needed to answer the love that I was receiving from God in even more meaningful ways than I was.”

Upcoming Events

Transformative Giving - The Prophetic Edition!

June 6, 2024

Online at 7-9pm Eastern // 4-6pm Pacific

You are invited to a special Prophetic edition of our annual mid-year Transformative Giving fundraising event on Thursday, June 6th.  Why the Prophetic theme?   Wisdom & Money’s work is rooted in both the contemplative and the prophetic traditions of ancient Christianity. Stepping into 2024, we asked ourselves which themes we could bring out that would be supportive during what for some is a particularly intense year, with wars, a polarizing election, and more. As a team, we decided to bring out the prophetic vision that characterizes our work, amplifying it by sharing more on this topic with you, our community.  We’ll say more soon, but we’ll be holding space for  prophetic imagination at this year’s mid-year fundraising event. For now, we’d love for you to mark your calendars for a truly unique approach to fundraising!
