Examples of Other Flow Funds


In 2008, the Flow Fund Circle began collaborating with three different collectives who showed wisdom, generosity of spirit and community leadership. These collectives, Beyond Boundaries, The Tipping Point Network, and The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers received funds to give away for a three year period.


Beyond Boundaries Flow Fund

Beginning in June of 2009, a small group of leaders of diverse ages and backgrounds began an international service pilgrimage called Beyond Boundaries (BB). The pilgrimage moves through a number of places, centers and communities in the United States, Europe, Asia and Oceania that are exploring the frontiers of creative, peaceful, and regenerative life. Beyond Boundaries is committed to experiential education, cross-cultural community exchange, leadership development and a deep personal and collective inquiry into the pressing issues and needs of our times. Participants listen and learn from the people and places they visit and offer their support and service work, using their own variety of gifts and experience.


The Tipping Point Network Flow Fund

The Tipping Point Network Flow Fund
is a self-organizing network of collaborative, high-integrity philanthropic leaders and social innovators in widely diverse fields envisioning and catalyzing a whole system shift from survival to sustained abundance.

By choosing leaders who give back most, this network creates a strategy of generosity. Find out more by dowloading a full PDF description of their work.
