Upcoming Transitions at FaithTrust Institute

Jun 01, 2022 — Categories:

Because you are a supporter and ally of FaithTrust Institute, I am writing to share news about the organization's upcoming transitions. Like many non-profits, we have faced growing financial challenges generated by the March 2020 COVID lockdown. We have worked thoughtfully to continue our programming with fewer staff hours and reduced expenses. Additionally, we have looked for ways to continue to make our resources available to a wide audience. In our ongoing efforts to act as good stewards of our resources, we are announcing a few changes.

Dear friends,

Because you are a supporter and ally of FaithTrust Institute, I am writing to share news about the organization's upcoming transitions.

Like many non-profits, we have faced growing financial challenges generated by the March 2020 COVID lockdown. We have worked thoughtfully to continue our programming with fewer staff hours and reduced expenses. Additionally, we have looked for ways to continue to make our resources available to a wide audience. In our ongoing efforts to act as good stewards of our resources, we are announcing a few changes.

The staff has already begun the Free-for-All Initiative, which will make the books and videos created and published by the organization free on public online sites. We are delighted to announce that our books and print resources will be hosted on VAWnet, which is the online library of National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV). Our videos will be available for free on FaithTrust Institute’s YouTube channel. The staff is currently focusing on having this project completed by the end of June 2022.

With the implementation of the Free-for-All Initiative, our online store will be closing effective June 20, 2022. We will no longer sell and ship print or video products. All the materials that we have published over our 45 years will be available for free to download at VAWnet and the YouTube channel.

Our online Buddhist boundary training, with its core FaithTrust Institute curriculum, is moving to a new organization formed by our outstanding teacher group. Fall 2022 class registration is now available at BuddhistHealthyBoundaries.org and we encourage you to sign up for this critical boundary education program.

We are moving to a virtual office space effective June 30, 2022 and therefore closing our physical office in Seattle, Washington. You can still find us online at www.faithtrustinstitute.org. Our website will continue to provide links to resources, training, and organizational information.

On behalf of the board and staff, we thank you and are deeply grateful for your support of our mission and work.
