About our Programs
The Aurora Now Foundation helps people and organizations create better futures
for themselves and their communities. As a research and education foundation,
our programs and projects are designed to apply our research in ways that
are useful and meaningful to those we serve. Don't forget, we count on your
support to keep our programs growing and effective.
Our programs are concentrated into these areas of focus:
Business & Organizational Leadership:
The Integrity Incubator
helps new and young small business and non-profits survive the critical
first years after start-up.
We also provide and facilitate Consulting,
Workshops & Dialogue
programs for organizational development in private, public and non-profit
environments of all sizes.
Our free e-mail newsletter, Integrity
Insights, provides ideas, insights and inspiration for all organizational
leaders to grow with integrity.
Our current focus on youth is the development of our FutureMakers
project, a collaborative effort between Aurora Now and Syntony Quest,
a San Francisco-based education organization.
Personal & Social Awareness:
Through our growing Resource Center with links
and articles, our e-mail Conversations
and our e-mail "diversity
digest," we raise personal and social awareness while providing
practical tips for applying new ways of thinking in families, communities,
educational and organizational environments.
Research & Design:
The Desert Conversation Community carries out action
research by 'translating' the results of our programs and projects into
case studies and reports to research communities. More importantly, we
'translate' empirical research and often abstract concepts and theories
of the systems science communities into practical, useful programs that
can be applied outside of academic and research environments to make our
"human systems" more effective, healthy, meaningful and sustainable.
Ranchito Aurora de la Manaña:
We're making progress, but we still have a long way to go in creating
our home in the beautiful Sonoran Desert outside of Tucson, Arizona, to
be a gathering place for conversation, workshops, seminars and day retreats.
