On June 10th, 2006 we held a celebration and benefit for the Foundation at the Mill Valley Community Center, where 225 people came to celebrate our 10th Anniversary and honor the 2005-2006 recipients of the Circle of Bridge-Makers Awards. Since 2003, our Foundation has honored a total of eight individuals doing outstanding bridging work nationally and internationally. Our 2005-2006 honorees include: Liliana Madrigal, of The Amazon Conservation Team; Mark Gerzon, The Global Leadership Network Project; and Zainab Salbi, of Women for Women International. These outstanding honorees presented the heart of their bridging efforts, which also furthers the vision and mission of our Foundation’s work.

In 2006, we will be celebrating our tenth year Anniversary as a non-profit Foundation. We support the preservation of indigenous wisdoms, environmental sustainability, multi-cultural bridging, and intergenerational leadership demon- strated by both elders and youth. Over the last ten years we have reached over 25 countries, supported projects on every continent, awarded over 70 scholarships; and funded 150 national and international projects that have made a difference in their communities and countries. We could not have accomplished this without the generosity that was provided by each donation of time, money and creative resources consistently extended to us during the last ten years. Here is a small sample of the projects we have supported over the last ten years to demonstrate the range of our Foundation’s contribution and mission.
We continue to reach over twenty-seven countries in our highly successful Circle of Bridge-Makers Program, which supports multi-cultural bridging and collaborative efforts between countries, generations, professions and faiths. It honors elders as invaluable mentors and wisdom keepers, and fosters the development of emerging leaders and educational opportunities for youth world-wide. For the past three years this program has reached projects and people in Africa, China, Central and South America, India, and Europe in providing necessary educational, environmental, and medical opportunities. We continue to extend scholarships to teens, young adults, and elders of all races to further their gifts and talents and to provide opportunities to them that otherwise would not be available. This year two new scholarship funds have been established to honor the memory of deceased relatives: The Deborah Gordon Nothstine scholarship and the Michael Elorriaga Fund.Their specific dreams and interests will live on through the scholarships extended to others each year.
We are honored and happy to announce that our Foundation was one of ten national organizations that received a $75,000 recognition award for the innovative international philanthropy our Foundation has provided in over 27 countries in fostering educational, environmental, and medical opportunities. We are deeply grateful to have his additional support to continue the successful bridging efforts of our Circle of Bridge-makers Project with this generous award. Locally and nationally, we have extended over 40 scholarship to teens, young adults ad elders to further their gifts and talents and provide opportunities to them that otherwise would not be available.
Celebrating our five-year anniversary, our annual newsletter features a partial listing of our current projects, outreach, and impact. Grateful for the support and commitment provided by each donation of time, money, and creative resources, we initiated four major target areas. Each are intergenerational, multi-cultural, and interdisciplinary in their local, national, and international outreach. Each are intergenerational, multi-cultural, and interdiscipli- nary in their local, national, and international outreach. With our existing programs combined with two new projects –– the Circle of Bridge-Makers Awards and The Lady Vera Scholarship Fund, we have reached over 25 countries and every continent. We are especially grateful to The Flow Fund, Maxfield Foundation, Kreitler Foundation, Steiner Foundation, Philanthropic Collaborative, Institute of Noetic Sciences, and the Fetzer Institute for continued support and collaboration.
