Who We Are

W&M is a web of people of wealth who seek to align the flow of their financial resources with the Holy Spirit in service of Divine Love and Justice. Our work is rooted in ancient Christian traditions, contemplative and prophetic, and modern social movements for justice.

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

“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.”

“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?”

December 6, 2023

Join the Wisdom & Money staff and board around a virtual hearth for a time of sharing in community. Your presence will be a gift to us during this time together! Earlier in the year, we introduced the idea of Wisdom & Money as a Community Supported Ministry. As 2023 comes to a close, we want to put the spotlight on the community part of that vision. We are offering an end-of-year fundraising event that acknowledges the intimacy, sharing, and mutual transformation that occurs in spiritual community! To this end, we invite you to join us for a gathering where you will have an opportunity to share your response to the following questions: How have the Wisdom & Money community and Spirit touched your money life this year? Where have you given or received support as part of this community?
