Bread for the Journey is a unique philanthropic organization.
We believe that all people have equal gifts to offer – some bring money, some bring time or talents. Others bring ideas or creativity. Each of us comes to the table, bringing what we have, in what is, in essence, a relationship. Together, we nurture one another’s ability to be generous, in the broadest sense of the word. Seeing ourselves and each other in this light, each of us is changed through our giving.
Our international office helps local chapters set up in their communities a model that is proven, practical, effective, and replicable. The first Bread for the Journey chapter was started in Santa Fe in 1988. Since 1998, our central office has been helping individuals and groups create and sustain local chapters of Bread for the Journey, allowing us to significantly extend our reach and increase our impact. Today we have nineteen chapters in the US.
