Project Description

Thank you for tuning in to our crowdfunding campaign on iFundWomen. During this transitional time, our hearts are holding you. Cultural Fabric remains a people-centered, heart-centered social enterprise supporting the thriving of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in businesses & communities.  We believe that when the most marginalized among us is healed, we will all be healed. We promote all our healing by spreading tools for us to catalyze healing related to our life and our work.

Our Ask

Help support us in raising $16,350 to fund continued general operations and the current and future cohorts of the Healing Arts Institute (HEAL).  HEAL supports leaders to strengthen conscious, BIPOC-centered decolonization practices as they support others through their work.

The funds we raise will cover
  • General operations: $3,950
  • HEAL operations: $7,000 (including new tuition scholarship fund, facilitator fees, operational expenses, and supplies)
  • HEAL financial need-based scholarships for current Cohort 4: $5,400

Outside of monetary support, we also seek support in spreading the word about our work. Please share our campaign so we may bring more people to healing practices and support leaders, particularly leaders who self-identify as BIPOC, to join in co-creating this healing ecosystem. There are more ways than one to give, see the FAQ section about volunteering with us.

About our founder

At heart, I'm a creative whose soul speaks the language of transformation and expansion.  This has taken many evolving forms over my lifetime, and all the forms build on each other to create this body-mind-spirit work.  I am a management professional turned entrepreneur, and simultaneous dance artist and educator, certified yoga teacher, facilitator, writer and mindfulness-based coach with no separation among these roles. The threads that hold them all together are the urge to create, the need to serve, and the desire to envision and support a world full of people who do good for the common good.
