The Department of Bioregion sponsors and supports grassroots projects by our volunteers and members that grow bioregionalism and bioregional movements around the world. We also sponsor informal projects that further a bioregional vision, principles and that may be looking for more professional non-profit support.
We believe the people living in a place are the best suited to take the lead on issues affecting that area. Through our work, we connect projects, organizations and groups together, and work to strengthen each by providing services such as outreach, website support, fundraising, legal support, and anything else we can do to empower their success.
We sponsor and support any work that builds greater understandings of bioregions, promote place appropriate technologies and policies, provide direct funding for community projects, and support the creation of centers to determine the carrying capacities and regenerative frameworks for each watershed and bioregion we live in.
Want to start a project or join our Project Collective?
Let us know! We’d love to connect and support your project in any way we can. If you’d like to partner or join our collective let us know, and we can talk about what kind of support is most important to you.
We can help by:
- Creating a WordPress Website portal with access to normally very expensive paid plugins.
- Advice and help starting social media and email lists.
- Access to recurring and one time donations, as well as a 501(c)(3) tax status for tax deductible donations to empower your project.
- Support for strategic planning, raising awareness of your project and finding other volunteers.
- A mentorship with other project and project leaders.
Step away at any time. Retain full control of your content and materials. No stress. Our goal is to empower all bioregional organizers and projects.
Whether you join our collective or not – reach out how we can amplify your voice or project.
