Who We Are
The nature of our work has shaped our agile organizational structure that allows for highly customized design of client engagements and experimental initiatives. Over the years, we have been fortunate to work with a dynamic array of professionals, contributing their expertise to our project-based teams. While these contributors are featured in project-related materials, this page presents current members of the Practice Council and the Stewardship Council of the Evolutionary Funding Collaboratory and showcases selected guest teachers.
This Practice Council is the main governing body of the Evolutionary Funding Collaboratory (EFC)—a collaborative funding vehicle supporting member-led projects that contribute to transcontextual learning and collective action for systems transformation. Practice Council includes EFC members who have been actively contributing to the work of Evolutionary Futures Lab as co-hosts, guest teachers, consultants, etc., and showed commitment to shaping the long-term institutional evolution of our collaborative funding practice. Practice Council Members design EFC's policies and procedures and oversee its operations.
Stewardship Council is the main advisory body of the Evolutionary Funding Collaboratory (EFC). It includes EFC founding members who co-designed our first collaborative funding prototype in 2015 and long-time collaborators who witnessed the evolution of our collaborative funding practices over the years. Stewardship Council Members receive updates on EFC development and impact and offer strategic insight and advice.
Featured Guest Teachers
Over the years, we have worked with dozens of guest teachers who contributed to our custom and open enrollment programs or taught member-led workshops funded by our collaborative funding community (including some of our current Practice Council and Stewardship Council members). Below is a sample of guest teachers that represent some of the schools of thought and approaches that we invited into our learning experiences.

You can find some of the recordings of our guest teachers on our YouTube channel. As we work on processing our video archive and host new programs, we will keep adding new videos and making them available to the public.
