Additional Information


Thanks for your Interest. 

We are interested in truly collaborative processes which build strength and value both individually and collectively simultaneously. Competition is part of the world and the landscape of work, but too often gets in the way of good work and needed collaboration. 

We are committed to in a supporting infrastructure needs each individual group, while building power through a truly incentivized collaborative network. This is consistent with many of our partners practices within our network. 

But we are interested in resourcing practices that break the kinds of behavior that undermine our communities best interest and that of equity and instead encourages and allows new seeds (ideas & groups) to grow in fertile ground, in ways that transform community.

That is why we Co-lead the Mid Atlantic's Community of Practice around "Old Money, Next Systems.


Let's Explore Together

 Fiscal Sponsorship-- Project Form #1/3

Our approach asks of all of us to look at self, organization, community in doing the work, among varying community circles as partners and colleague as peers.

We believe in a model oriented toward continual improvement (improvement science).  Where the values of our different culture which we define as ways of being and evaluation and complexity, network, movement, often

Falls apart. 

Said differently when money is on the table we to often feel pitted to only will work for me. Versus 

Laying down a stone to step on, then laying down another stone, to chart a new path forward. We have those practices as embodied and encouraged in our approach.

There are many ancient references to these ways of being,but rarely or often doesn’t exist in practice well.

Fiscal Sponsorship Financial--Project Form #2/3

Traditional Fiscal Sponsorship

We value insight and different ways of being, so our approach to evaluation is both traditional and flexible.  First the traditional approach.  If we mutually decide to go deeper into relationship we will explore a 3rd form that explores philosophy of how you operate and wish to be judged or evaluated on your work and practice.


This is because we believe that people see differently and can therefore can Be  and act in the world differently. 

In fact “Ways of being” is how we define culture. 

And different cultures have different values and virtues …around which their entire cultures rotate. Some of us also have multiple cultures.

We live and have to report and evaluate in the world.  How we structure and make decisions can vary however.  This next form is a traditional approach. 

 If this only partially or does not resonate with you at all, we will invite you (in Fiscal Sponsorship Form #3) into deeper conversations around how we might evaluate your work in a way more consistent with you culture, or way of being, while still meeting standards and requirements.
