Welcome to Chalice Oak Foundation


Chalice Oak Foundation was conceived by a group of visionary leaders who provide training, consultation and support in leadership, governance, and nonprofit management to values-based leaders who want to transform the world.

Whether you are just beginning to envision a new project in your local community, or already are running a nonprofit, Chalice Oak can help you make your dream of peace, justice and compassion succeed.


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.   -- Margaret Mead








The vision of Chalice Oak Foundation is to be a repository of energy and ideas—providing the means by which values-based community leaders can promote peace, justice and compassion in our world. We further envision ourselves as an umbrella under which those leaders’ projects can sprout, grow and thrive.




It is our mission to offer the infrastructure, tools, training and resources required to promote effective nonprofit management, leadership development, grass-roots organizing, and compassionate relations to those who embrace the spirit of our Vision.
