February Events in Partnership with Wisdom & Money


Be Present's partnership with Wisdom & Money grew in 20189.  Rooted in the wisdom and prophetic traditions of Christianity, Wisdom & Money ( invites people of wealth to engage with money as a doorway to spiritual transformation at the personal, communal and systemic levels. The Be Present Empowerment Model®, contemplative spiritual practices from Wisdom Christianity, and open conversation about money are infused throughout the organization.

In 2019, our collaboration further expands. In February, Be Present and Wisdom & Money will hold a joint board meeting and conduct an Engaged Transformative Philanthropy Workshop. As the year continues Be Present will support Wisdom & Money as it infuses its organizational values and core practices into a Board and Staff Onboarding Program.
