New Seneca Village Grants

A Collective Practice

New Seneca Village is an intentional community and offering.  Our intention is to live into the spirit of an interconnected, thriving and abundant Village centered on restoration, connection and visioning.

We offer the grants below to insure that all Villagers, regardless of means, are able to be a part of our community.

We also want to support our collective ability to claim space from our day to day concerns and

responsibilities so that  while we are on residency we can focus on being

present to our individual and collective rhythms and needs.

 

In that spirit, if accepting the Travel and Back Home grants will make a difference for you,

please request the amount you need.

 

If accepting the Travel and Back Home grants would have little impact on your ability to attend a

New Seneca Village residency, please leave all, or a portion of funds for others

for whom this offering will have greater impact.

 

We have included an offering on how you may want to consider your grant request at the bottom of this page. 

We will not means test your request against your salary in granting these funds.

We look forward to co-creating this conscious abundance community practice with you.  

These grants are available for in-person residencies only.
