Mission Statement

The Dignity of Man is an educational foundation committed to making the world a more equitable, sustainable and healthy place for every living thing.

We believe in providing the opportunities and resources for each person to develop and achieve their fullest human potential and to express the innate creativity that is the birthright of all humanity.

We believe the best way to accomplish this is through fostering an ever-growing sense of responsibility to contribute to the well-being of others and forging strategic partnerships across the public, private and non-profit sectors.

Currently we work by helping develop projects as a fiscal receiver, providing fiscal management and record keeping, as well as structure and support to ensure that project goals are within 501(c)3 guidelines.

We support projects which:
◾Cultivate forward thinking education and communication
◾Develop a collaborative sense of community, locally and globally
◾Seek to preserve the world's diversity, whether ecological or cultural
◾Foster a sense of the importance of nature and it's cycles
◾Encourage creative expression and collaboration through the arts
◾Provide support to at-risk populations in the community

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
