The On Being Project is a nonprofit media and public life initiative. We make a public radio show, podcasts, and tools for the art of living. Six grounding virtues guide everything we do. We explore the intersection of spiritual inquiry, science, social healing, community, poetry, and the arts. We’re offering ongoing special content for this moment, including conversations about race and healing, “care packages" for care givers and uncertain times, and a new way to experience poetry.
The On Being Project has always grown and evolved by way of hospitality, generosity, and relationship — both offered and received from our listeners, our collaborators, and our funding partners. We are honored by the beautiful array of people, projects, and places that join our adventure, point new ways forward for us, and apply our offerings in ways we would never have imagined.

The On Being Project is supported by donations from individuals, philanthropic grants from foundations and institutions, fees paid by public radio stations who broadcast On Being, and underwriting in the On Being podcast and public radio program. Our funding partnerships are with organizations who support the tenets of our mission. They reflect a variety of perspectives, just as our guests and audiences do, and we meet them at the point where their priorities align with the programmatic focus of our work. As a journalistic project, we maintain a firm editorial firewall with all donors. As a growing nonprofit enterprise, we continuously strive to fulfill our mission through diversified revenue that will sustain our work and organization for long term impact.
We’re grateful for the many individuals and organizations who have accompanied our journey with financial gifts and generously sustained us across the years.
