February Events in Partnership with Wisdom & Money


Be Present's 15-year partnership with Wisdom & Money grew in 2018.  For those who haven't yet "met" Wisdom & Money  (, their organization is rooted in the wisdom and prophetic traditions of Christianity, and their mission is to invite  people of wealth to engage with money as a doorway to spiritual transformation at the personal, communal and systemic levels. The Be Present Empowerment Model®, contemplative spiritual practices from Wisdom Christianity, and open conversation about money are infused throughout the organization.

In 2019, our collaboration further expands. In February, Be Present and Wisdom & Money will hold a joint board meeting and conduct an Engaged Transformative Philanthropy Workshop. As the year continues Be Present will support Wisdom & Money with the next phase of their Human Resources Consultancy, supporting the development of an Onboarding Policy and Procedure for its Board and Staff.
