Invitation to Support Our Work

The Presencing Institute would not exist without individual donations, grants, and program revenues. Your donation directly contributes to our awareness-based systems work towards profound societal renewal – be it through capacity building, action research, or deep innovation labs.

Most of our work is offered freely through a creative commons licence, with the aim of making the tools and methods accessible for all. If you’ve ever used our practices in your work; if you’ve ever benefited from our free online offerings; or if you’ve ever enjoyed connections or insights enabled by our online platform, please consider donating.

Projects your donation will support in 2020:

Free access to resources: Ongoing development of tools and application stories, available to all online.

Societal Transformation Lab: Multi-local, online-to-offline innovation infrastructure, including


  • u.lab 1x: From sensing and presencing to generating powerful prototype ideas
  • u.lab 2x: Moving from prototypes to ecosystem impact
  • Global Forum (July 10-11, 2020, Berlin): In-person sharing and celebrating across sectors, initiatives, and ecosystems
  • Dialogues on Transforming Society and Self (DoTS; monthly online dialogues): Engagement and inspiration for change-makers across sectors and places

Ubuntu.Lab: a six-month online-offline learning program for change-makers and innovators across 19 African countries.

Social Field Research Summer School in Berlin: a global network of action researchers who, over a decade, will advance the field of awareness-based action research.

By donating you help shape the global narrative of our time, work towards a future for the well-being of all, and co-pioneer practical ways of bridging the ecological, social, and spiritual divides. While some of our initiatives are supported by a combination of foundation grants and tuition, most of our work depends solely on contributions from our community of partners and contributors. Therefore, we deeply appreciate any contribution you can make.
