Help us make a difference in the world!

How we prepare and adapt to the convergent crises overwhelming the planet will make a critical difference to how the future unfolds. Deep Adaptation Forum is having a transformative impact, enabling members and participants to travel through grief, anxiety, and despair, and join a community facing the truth of what is with curiosity, compassion, and respect. By embracing our interconnectedness with one another and our environment, we embark on a conscious journey of solidarity, breaking a cycle of bewilderment and aggression and replacing it with opportunities for generative dialogue, listening, and learning.

DAF’s platforms and activities promote and encourage critical conversations about personal and practical adaptations that foster deeper emotional and psychological resilience. Our unique mission comes from the fact that we have moved beyond ‘managing’ the impacts of a changing climate, seeking ‘sustainable’ outcomes, adhering to false narratives about ‘progress’ and ‘development,’ or maintaining a deeply inequitable status quo. Instead we aim to generate and communicate knowledge, exchange information, build out interpersonal networks, and enable positive action.

DAF helps people face troubling and uncertain times calmly, creatively, and decisively. Our platforms and activities, and the participant-led projects we nurture, help members to make renewed - and even radical - commitments and contributions to life.

Here’s how you can help!

We run primarily on the human-powered fuel of dedicated volunteers. (Hopefully, dear reader, you are one of them!) DAF also has a core team of five part-time freelancers who receive stipends in exchange for the expertise and passion, which they combine with the sweat-equity of volunteers in order to share Deep Adaptation with those yet feeling isolated and adrift. Modest contributions and gifts of every size are leveraged to offer the respite and renewed purpose that our community provides.

If you feel our work has brought value to you and you believe it’s important for it to continue - and if you possess the means to make a financial contribution now - we would be so grateful.

Here’s what we’ll do with your donation:

We will invest in the people and platforms that help build awareness, support our affinity groups and volunteers, enable online and also in-person community (when again possible to do so), and provide professional and educational resources that will help bring DAF messaging into settings where they may have an important influence. In short, you will help provide the ideas, tools, and systems that allow collapse-aware individuals to take empowered action.

We are committed to co-creation and emergence; your support will enable us to continue to involve members to shape our strategy, so we can best serve our communities and stay relevant and responsive.

And be assured that every donation will be rapidly and wisely put to good use. DAF runs lean, with minimal financial reserves on hand month to month.

Anything else?

Presumably you are here because you wish to support Deep Adaptation Forum. Please carry through on that goal, with our deepest thanks! If you would like more information, visit us at the DAF website, where you can also find links to all of our social media accounts. One particular page on our website bears special mention: Our Charter, which shapes and guides how we strive to interact as a community and as individuals.  

For individual assistance please contact [email protected].

Thank you!

Given more support, we have a chance to reach a critical mass, and make Deep Adaptation blossom into a genuine social movement with impacts reaching far and wide, beyond borders, cultures, and social classes. We have the opportunity to become a catalyst for peace and positive transformation in an increasingly fragmented world.

We are so grateful for financial contributions, and yet we value more than anything the joy and warmth with which we nurture each other, our community, and this beautiful planet that sustains us. Thank you for your generous spirit and all the ways you share your gifts with the world.
