Mid-States Shared Gifting Program
The Mid-States Shared Gifting Program supports the work of initiatives inspired by the ideas of Rudolf Steiner that are located predominantly in the central states of the U.S. The intention of the program is to facilitate research, make grants, and ensure the sustainability of the fund.
The Mid-States Shared Gifting Program is actively trying to rebuild the fund as well as support the fund’s visibility in the Mid-States community. Moving forward the advisors will further the mission of the fund through fostering the Shared Gifting process and looking into the practical application of associative economic relationships in the Mid-States region.
We are working with the Waldorf Schools Fund Sharing Group as partners in this project. To learn more about the Fund Sharing Group, please read this article.
Please note we will not be accepting proposals until further notice.
Given the challenges of the current economic climate and the market forces affecting investment performance over the last few years, the advisors have focused on their long-term commitment to preserve and rebuild the fund. The Mid-States Shared Gifting Program is seeking new funds to further honor the vision of Elise Ott Casper, who so graciously initiated the fund to help Rudolf Steiner’s inspiration flourish in her region.
Since 1998, when her bequest came to RSF, the Mid-States Shared Gifting Program has made $5 million in grants. This gifting has brought about a flourishing of activity, which we hope now has the possibility of contributing to rebuilding the fund in the spirit of, what we call, “re-generosity”. We will post any updates to the grant program at this site.
The Mid-States Shared Gifting Program was created by the late Elise Ott Casper (1919-1997). She bequeathed the majority of her estate to RSF with the wish that yearly earnings from these funds be granted upon the recommendations of the advisors of the fund. In keeping with this intention, RSF established the Mid-States Shared Gifting Program. The advisory group continues to develop the program and acts as an advisory group to RSF.
The focus of the Mid-States Shared Gifting Program is towards initiatives located in the Mid-States region which includes Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama to the East, and Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico to the West, and all the states in between.
