A country where everyone has a fair shot at wellbeing is a vision that’s bigger than any one person, organization, system or community. The only way to get there is by working in concert with others. Our partnerships bring mutual value, provide opportunities for shared discovery and learning, and show what’s possible when we see and do our work in ways that align with and tap into our universal drive for wellbeing.
They’re big government systems and grassroots community groups and nonprofits. It’s less important to us what sector you’re in than if you’re a changemaker who shares our North Star.
FFI and our partners work together to advance structural change, shift mental models, and solve problems through a wellbeing orientation. Together, we and our partners bring deep knowledge, expertise, and commitment to make that North Star a reality.
The fundamental national transformation we and our partners seek will take time. But there are steps forward that must be taken now as our country wrestles with racism, oppression, COVID, and more. We are focused on targeted partnerships to address a specific issue or challenge. If you have a pressing issue, are curious about how a focus on wellbeing could help, and want your work to be a part of a national movement, we’d love to talk.
Let’s start the conversation.
