Changing the world is hard work and flows from the heart. We invest in partners who are seeking to care for the whole person—body, mind, and spirit—and recover the contemplative knowing of God that is so central to the spiritual journey.

We seek to invest in efforts to renew and replenish the souls of our grantee partners to “keep the spark alive” and equip them for long-term success. We also invest in New England church-based efforts that seek to reclaim the contemplative essence of our faith traditions that unites us beyond our theological differences.

Keep the Spark Alive

A program designed to support our grantee partners’ efforts in nurturing the inner lives of their staff.  Current IDF grantees are eligible to apply for this grant, which is awarded above and beyond current grant funding.
