Part 5: I Need Help

Even though The Marin Foundation has existed on well under $100,000 per year, the following is the best case scenario budget for 2010, where The Marin Foundation can run full steam.

The key to this budget are the Trainings. Right now, it kills me that The Marin Foundation can only go train entities that are able to pay us, which I feel at a very real level, hampers the influence of this movement. My vision for this bridge building movement is not based on payment, but rather on the ability to pounce on a need when one is brought to us anywhere in the world. Instead of us hearing a need and then having to negotiate a price for folks who can’t afford our services, we want more than anything to just ‘go’ right away without hesitation and continue pushing this movement forward! Here you go…
