About

We fund movement support organizations.
We exchange grassroots brilliance.

While women, youth, and Indigenous Peoples contribute least to large-scale, global problems like climate change, inequality, poverty, and broken food systems, they often are the most impacted by them. 

However, with enough support and resources, everyday people are shaping proven and powerful local solutions to our shared and urgent global challenges.

Vision

Thousand Currents envisions a world where humanity thrives as a creative force that is reciprocal and interdependent with nature, and creates loving, equitable and just societies. 


 

Values

Courage: We confront injustice and inequality with love, strength, conviction, and integrity.

Humility: We are part of a greater whole. We are one among many currents. We recognize our place among many forces for good and change that exist in the world.

Experimentation: In order to take principled actions together, we prioritize learning, commit to self-reflection, embrace trial and error, and honor multiple ways of knowing.

Creative collaboration: We share power, practices, and resources to reimagine new ways of living.

Interdependence: With our futures intertwined, we respect all beings and build authentic relationships to move forward together.

 

Theory of Change

When grassroots groups and social movements have the relationships and financial and intellectual resources they desire, they are strengthened to transform the world by changing cultures, systems, and institutions towards self-determination, justice and equity around the world.
