Reconnecting Ecology, Culture, and Spirituality

Kalliopeia Foundation is responding to a call – a global challenge – to take spiritual as well as physical responsibility for our common home. Our projects and those we support engage with contemporary issues at their root, with the understanding that ecological, cultural, and spiritual renewal are interdependent. We partner with innovative individuals and organizations whose work is impactful and far-reaching, and our own programs are multi-faceted, including Emergence Magazine, the Spiritual Ecology Fellowship, and the Global Oneness Project.


Kalliopeia Foundation envisions a future rooted in fundamental values, such as compassion, respect, dignity, reverence for nature, and care for each other and the Earth. Our work and that of our partners strives to embody the following core principles:

Life Is Sacred
Honoring all life as sacred; expressing reverence for one another, the Earth, and life as a whole.

Approaching ecology, culture, and spirituality as inextricably interdependent.

Generating creative ideas and outcomes through simple, meaningful engagement with others and the Earth.

Embracing an ethic of care – the essential and natural aspiration to respond to needs beyond our own.

Our Commitment

In a sincere effort to bring cohesion to all aspects of Kalliopeia Foundation, we strive to align our financial investing with our vision, mission, and values, and we are committed to socially responsible and ethical investing. With care and consideration, we have invested over 95 percent of the Foundation’s endowment with a social and environmental lens, while taking a financially sound approach. We invest in companies, organizations, and funds that are committed to economic development, community resilience, diversity, equal opportunity, and environmental stewardship. Up to 25 percent of our investments are held in funds that provide loans at the community level.
