At Kindle Project, what we offer extends beyond grantmaking and into the relationships we cultivate with the projects and people we support.
We direct our funding and support to people and projects taking meaningful risks and approaching their work with creativity, innovation, resiliency, collaboration, humor, and courage.
Bold organizations and projects often need much more than money. Many other resources, skills and types of assistance are necessary to translate ideas into action. Kindle Project believes in providing significant support to grantees that goes beyond our financial commitments.
Communication and Connection Hubs
Creating connections among our community of grantees and projects is often the most important work we do. When people working for change are aware of emerging fields and complementary efforts, this can have dramatic impacts on development and success.
Experts at uncovering potent and compelling projects, we consult with other funders, donors, and organizations who are interested in creative approaches to finding hidden treasures.
Indie Philanthropy Initiative
We have learned a lot about how to do philanthropy “outside the box” and support others to find their own way to engage creatively, without having to start from scratch or learn through lots of mistakes.
An intensive program aimed at proactively sourcing and nurturing ideas for creative solutions and alternatives to complex problems.
