Funding Ideas (old and new): John Templeton Foundation - Opportunity for Nonprofit Organizations


John Templeton Foundation - Opportunity for Nonprofit Organizations


‚ÄčThe John Templeton Foundation serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to the deepest and most perplexing questions facing humankind. The Foundation's most recent request for proposals, "Character Through Community," will provide support to nonprofit organizations that are well-positioned to strengthen their understanding and implementation of character development through communities of practice. When discussing "character," the Foundation is referring to the thoughts, attitudes, and motivations that guide a person's behavior. By "communities of practice," the Foundation means groups that come together regularly to share knowledge, innovate, and solve problems. Examples of communities of practice include a group of teachers in a school, a group of coaches with a sports league, a group of business leaders in an organization, religious leaders within a faith tradition, etc. Visit the Foundation's website to learn more about the "Character Through Community".
