the purpose of (un)common good collective is quite simple; we serve as a shared resource organization to provide services and fund the work of communities of faith (and those without), organizations and individuals within our growing circle of those seeking to build a better world.
we seek to develop strong partnerships with friends and partners around the country (and even around the world) who are working toward creating a more fair and equitable, just and generous world by giving our time, treasure and talent in a shared economy of goodness.

there are countless people doing good in our world. it’s common. happens every damned day. what is historically uncommon, however, is intentional collaboration and the sharing of resources within these communities of do-gooders. many times perceived competition for donor dollars or platform, combined with a scarcity mindset limits the range and effectiveness of the work – and stifles our imagination of the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
