Transformative Learning Foundation

Donate Now!

When you invest in the TLF, you are co-generating a positive future with others who are choosing to be catalysts in regenerating a world that works for everyone through bringing forth their authentic gifts and talents with responsibility and compassionate action.

Our visionary commitment to facilitate the wisdom in education, awakening the potential for evolution in our consciousness is larger than life and we can’t do it alone. We recognize that we are all on a life-long learning journey, one that requires attracting stakeholders to participate in aligning efforts and resources to become part of the solution. We offer a place where people can continue to grow and evolve their capacity to make a difference. Meaningful conversations generate new possibilities for courses, mentorship, community building and leadership. Our learners are adults who live in the real world while integrating their studies in an unique living system grounded in relationships through mentorship and possibility thinking. TLF’s programs foster the philosophy of transformational, learner-centered inquiries emanating from a sense of being, knowing, and doing. There is a ripple effect in play when learners of all ages awaken to each of their own uniqueness and discover how to integrate that into a life well lived. And when this is cultivated in a learning community of care-it nurtures the evolution of a more peaceful humanity living in sustainable ways on the earth. This is a noble purpose-where each of us can be and do our part.

Donate to 90-for-90

In 2019, TLF Community member Fleurette Sweeney turns 90. To celebrate, Fleurette invites 90 people to each donate $90 to the 90-for-90 campaign, which would go towards learner scholarships.

Learn more about Fleurette Sweeney’s 90-year journey here.

Watch her employ her teaching techniques in the video below.

Why I donated to this 90-for-90 Campaign

“I donated to the 90 for 90 campaign for many reasons.

“The first is I love Fleurette and she inspires me endlessly. She exemplifies being a life long learner and she lives her life embodying limitless possibilities. I can’t think of a better way to honour Fleurette’s 90th birthday than to support other learners stepping into furthering their education.

“Second, I was blessed to receive a small inheritance from my grandmother, Irma Kaltio, when she died at 97 years old. As soon as I received it, I knew it was going to fund my master’s degree with the Transformative Learning Foundation. Furthering my education was the best way I could honour my grandmother. It would have been a struggle to fund further studies without her gift to me. So donating to a scholarship fund so that others may be able to pursue their studies is a way of passing on this blessing.

“Finally, as a recent graduate of TLF, I want anyone who has the desire to participate, to be able to do so. It was a dream come true for me and was a truly transformative learning journey. I look forward to the contribution recipients of these scholarships will make to the TLF community and the world.”

– Darcy Kaltio

“I sent [my donation] in appreciation of Fleurette’s impact on who I have become now. My time with her as grad students at UBC, co-researcher, and being a housemate were moments to treasure like imprints in my heart.”

Share Your Skills

The Transformative Learning Foundation invites people to engage in generating authentic learning experiences – ones that inspire spirals of discovery for each of us and for others who choose to participate in a learning community centered on reciprocal relationships. Learning to trust the capacity to unleash ones potential with support and collaboration of others is not common and yet it is core principal to designing a life of meaning.

We are growing our community with many of our alumni leading the way. Their feedback is that although they have graduated, they do not want to leave-instead they want to grow the movement of people who choose real meaning through evolving their full potential. Our Board of Directors join in this compassionate effort to be a catalyst for positive change needed for schooling to spiral up to meaningful learning for the 21st Century world. We believe that if we build it they will come…we are bold in our endeavor. This requires the energy of many, not a few. If you are called to make the world a better place, and if you are looking to align with others who resonate with “be the change you want to see,” then step forward , let us know and choose your point of connection. Let’s get started!
