For those who proposed each idea -- if you would like to continue the conversation via email and/or by convening a conference call with the others who added their names on post-it notes, please email the group listed under your idea and copy Kaede Kawauchi (kaede@intentionalendowments.org). 

If you are interested in one of the groups, and your name is not included on the list, please let us know and we will add it and connect you with the person who proposed that group. (*please note: some of the post-it notes fell off the board before we had a chance to take pictures, so please double check that your name is included under each group in which you are interested!)
