At First Nature Foundation, our mission is to cultivate 21st Century Leadership: to help develop core self-leadership and collective leadership skills needed for this time.
We work with leaders and teams in organizations to enhance their capacities for engagement, collaboration, and generative outcomes.
We also offer programs for children, teens, and adults to evoke more of their innate leadership potential for more success in school, career, relationships, and community.
In the process, we nurture a reverence for all sentient life, along with awareness of its inherent wisdom.

IDignity, Inc. (321) 445-1900
No volunteers right now. One thing is for certain – once this pandemic comes to an end and we all return to our daily lives, the need for identification will be even greater. There will be numerous people looking for work, people who lost their job in the wake of the coronavirus and don’t have proper identification. Without that identification, finding employment will be nearly impossible.
Consider making a financial gift – click this link to support the people who need to find a job but don’t have the identification they need to secure employment. You can make a one-time donation that will ensure IDignity weathers this storm and is ready to serve those in need of identification, or you can set up recurring gifts to sustain IDignity’s mission long past this pandemic.
Share IDignity’s mission with friends and family – click this link for ideas and resources you can use to spread the word about IDignity.
Your support, whether financial or by raising awareness, will ultimately help countless individuals get back on their feet.
