"The Lifebridge Foundation, Inc. was established in 1992 for the purpose of supporting organizations and individuals who, through cultural, educational, and/or scientific means, are creating bridges of understanding among all people by actions to realize the oneness of humanity and the interconnectedness of all life." [1]

History

"Early on, it became clear we needed to align ourselves with larger and more established organizations as a way to become known to the audience we were targeting. It was therefore natural to approach groups like The Institute of Noetic Sciences and The New York Open Center as a way to learn more about their networks. It wasn't very long thereafter that we were "known" and the letters came flooding in. Some even called us a "spiritual" foundation...

"On December 10, 1997, Human Rights Day, we were awarded associative status with the Department of Public Information of the United Nations...

"Always looking for ways to enhance the field of "holistic activism", the topic of meetings and gatherings kept coming up. Our first small conference (see image from top of this page) was inspired by one of our grantees, Rupert Sheldrake [grantee ...], who had a dream to host a conversation with thinkers representing a wide variety of disciplines on the incomprehensible concept of the consciousness of the Sun!..." [2]

Grantees

"Lifebridge Foundation was initially established to support groups and individuals working to bring the principles of oneness and interconnection into manifestation. Between 1993 and 2004 over 200 non-profit organizations and individuals have been helped to fulfill their missions." [3]
