DigniFunding: Toward a New Model of Development
We gladly welcome gifts to HumanDHS, yet we are deeply uncomfortable with "donate now buttons." We invite you to contribute only when you feel a sense of trust and resonance with the HumanDHS's message and mission to co-create a more dignifying world for all. Please allow us to offer you a few words describing our community's efforts.
In many ways, HumanDHS is a cause, a community, and a call to action. We have become the world's leading source of information on human dignity and its violation, humiliation. Our efforts lead us to not only develop dignifying ways of working, we are also developing dignifying ways of supporting the important work we are doing! The recent global economic crisis taught us that organizations driven by the “profit maximization motive” generate humiliating practices and conditions that damage and destroy relationships at all levels of our society (this includes nonprofit efforts driven by "donation maximization motives"). HumanDHS is dedicated to moving beyond economic practices that degrade, devalue, and dehumanize people around the world. More than 10 years of growth and collaboration, have taught us that we can do better, and we must do better!
"DigniFunding" is a term we use to describe our commitment to "walking the talk" of equal dignity in every step we take to support the work of HumanDHS! In the spirit of "walking the talk," have learned to practice a super-efficient, "lean, green, but not mean" model of sustainable community development. Our work advances because of the generous monetary and action gifts of a remarkable fellowship of visionary supporters who resonate with the deep integrity of the HumanDHS message!
We invite all who wish to advance this historic vision of equal dignity to contribute to the HumanDHS community according to their ability and conviction.
Principles and Goals of DigniFunding
DigniFunding is a model of sustainable development guided by two powerful principles:
- Relationships come first—we can all grow by supporting the growth of others!
- Money must serve, but not lead our collaborative efforts!
With the help of you and our larger community, DigniFunding is advancing the following crucial goals:
- Develop compelling e-learning programs for individuals, groups, and communities around the world!
- Provide scholarships to individuals from diverse backgrounds or distant locations who would otherwise not be able to participate in our events!
- Create educational materials, learning tools, and other resources to be used by a global community!
New Words for the HumanDHS Vision of Development!
Over the years, members of the HumanDHS community have lovingly invested themselves in ways that never cease to amaze us! Inspired by this devotion, we are compelled to invent new words to describe and honor the loyal and selfless participation of our members.
Sharegivers: Investing in a Global Vision!
Sharegivers invest in our community by contributing monetary gifts to support the growth and development of HumanDHS (e.g., providing scholarships, sponsoring a conference, providing funding for conference expenses, such as printing, nametags, programs, etc.).
We welcome and honor all who generously share their economic resources as HumanDHS "Sharegivers"! We warmly invite you to become a Sharegiver today!
We also gladly welcome legacy and anonymous donations. If you would like to contribute in either of these special ways, please kindly contact the HumanDHS Business Manager, Dr. Richard Slaven: (email@example.com) directly. He will be happy to assist you in whatever way that would work best for you.
Careholders: Collaborative Action!
HumanDHS community members are passionate about investing themselves through action gifts. These are gifts of time, energy, and effort that advance our collaborative work in ways that we never thought possible (e.g., hosting 14 conferences, proofreading and editing new publications, printing materials, assisting with electronic communications, posting electronic announcements, leading a project, presenting and facilitating conference activities, developing a program, etc.).
Those who invest in our community through action gifts are honored Careholders of our global vision! We warmly invite you to become a Careholder today!
Sharegivers-Careholders: A Loving Appreciation!
We especially want to recognize the members of our community who—over the years—have lovingly participated in our community as both "Sharegivers" and "Careholders"!! Your devotion to this work takes our breath away!
