BLOOMING
INITIATIVE

Philanthropy beyond funding

Blooming Initiative combines microgrants, capacity building and storytelling with a relationship based longer term approach, to strengthen grassroots communities that are prototyping regenerative economies based on care for people and planet.

RESILIENT CHANGE

Blooming began in 2020 as an experimental grant giving approach that aimed to learn from inspiring initiatives that are creating change through community-led and nature-based practices. After two years of mutual learnings, it evolved into a programme. The groups are currently selected by invitation only, and we envision expanding the cohort of Blooming groups in the upcoming years relying on our constant process of reflection and improvement. 

The ultimate goal of Blooming Initiative is to build resilience by combining diverse resources (financial and beyond), relationships and trust amongst those that dedicate their lives to regenerate the planet. 

In addition to that, Be The Earth wishes to create potential models for participatory and creative use of philanthropic resources that ignite reciprocity and alignment between theory and practice.
