FLOW FUNDING

Decentralising
Decision-making

Flow Funding is a programme that shares power with experienced activists and visionary leaders who choose from intuition how philanthropic funds should be invested.

RADICAL APPROACH

MAY THE RIVERS
OF WEALTH
BE UNDAMMED
AND FLOW FREELY
OVER THE EARTH.

Flow Funding is a cutting-edge approach, created by Marion Weber, the fourth generation of a traditional family of philanthropists, who refuted traditional models and chose to put trust and affection at the centre of all her work.

This approach aims to
diminish bureaucracy while decentralising decision making regarding the use of resources, inspiring more wealth holders to value the power of story and human connections.

Be The Earth has built upon this extensive legacy and opened its first Flow Funding circle in early 2020. 

Flow Funding Strategy

Flow Funding allows resources to address issues of people and communities with no access to funding and at the same time, creates a new consciousness around power dynamics.

REFLECTIONS ON TRUST

Flow Funding 2020

"My biggest challenge was to trust the flow. To identify when to be strategic and follow some kind o logic e when to believe in emotional paths and causes that appeared in front of me.

Be The Earth's team and network of allied activists is really committed to the greater cause of planetary regeneration. Our Flow Funding programme will expand within next years under the strategic approach of systemic change on key causes such as indigenous rights, forest protection and food sovereignty.

It gives us butterflies in our stomachs, but we are proud to announce that Be The Earth's team and supporters are ready to run the entire operation of circles funded and briefed by aligned partners within our network. We actually love butterflies, so if you intend to create your own tailored Flow Funding circle but want someone else to run the process, please get in touch.
