Freedom Funders provide the major investment. The major investments are the lump sums that give the Voices for the Earth the freedom to be and do. Our Voices for the Earth seek funds that come from the heart, from a place of trust and belief that each knows best how to use their funds. Each Voice for the Earth is putting their unique skills to best use in very different ways and very different needs arise as a consequence. To be a freedom funder is to place your belief in their way of being and doing and to give support that enables each of them to move forward as they best see fit.
If you wish to fund any of our Voices for the Earth, you can set up a freedom fund that flows directly to a given person(s) so that your funds are channeled specifically to them (minus our 10% tithe fee) to use as they best see fit. Each Voice for the Earth is responsible for reporting back how they have used their funds. In this way, the Earth Community Trust creates a pathway for direct funding streams to flow freely from you to the person(s) you support.
Freedom funding is funding that is given in trust specifically to a Voice for the Earth. It is funding that does not stay in the Earth Community Trust pot (save for the 10% tithe) – it goes straight to the Voice that you choose to support. Your freedom fund will be nourishment to help feed the person who is out there as a Voice for the Earth – quite literally your freedom fund will enable that person to continue in their role as a Voice for the Earth. Your funds may be put to best use in a number of ways; it is for the person you fund to decide how best to to put them to good use and we invite you to put trust in that person(s) to make the choice as to how they use your funds in whichever way they best see fit. In this way, as a funder you are placing your trust from a place of heart-felt belief that the Voice(s) you fund is doing whatever is for the best.
Our Voices for the Earth are Freedom Creators; each Voice is using their unique skills to bring into being ideas that will create a world that frees us all to be creative from a space of love – love of people and planet. Instead of working from a place of fear, lack and conflict, our belief in love, abundance and peace are central to all that we are and do. your Freedom Fund allows our Voices for the Earth to be free to create.
What we are doing is flipping the charity model that previously focused on a) the ‘project’ not the people and b) funding that was based on fear. We at the Earth Community Trust believe that by inviting in a model that puts at the heart the values we care about most, we will attract in the funders that open their hearts to a new way of funding – our Heart to Heart Funding – which will best help our Voices for the Earth flourish.
As much as makes your heart sing. Each of our Voices is in need of funding to enable them to be heard and move forward with their work. Please note: any funds under a £500 are usually treated as seed funds; processing smaller amounts is not cost-effective.
When you fund as a Freedom Funder, please make sure you use the name of the person you wish your funds to go to as your reference or let us know who you want the funds to go to (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
