Help us grow this work!
Please consider the following suggestions as minimum annual gifts for individuals, congregations, and larger enterprises respectively. (U.S. donations tax-deductible)
$100 makes a Funadamari possible, where friendships, ideas, dignity and hope are born.
- $1,000 helps us publish Nakamadatcha - by which local stories foster community solidarity and a positive paradigm shift.
- $10,000 will help us acquire office and hosting facilities to ensure sustainable solutions in which the primary stakeholders (our local friends themselves) get to be the primary decision-makers in the development of their hometown.
Of course, any gift - no matter the size - is welcome.
