Since the Charter was launched in 2009, we’ve understood more deeply that every resilient, innovative community, institution or partnership in the world is stitched together with the thread of compassion. In our dangerously polarised world, compassion is the only route to a safe, just, peaceful and viable world. 

Your gift is essential to realizing the transformative potential of the Charter for Compassion. Thank you for your support of the Charter for Compassion and the important work that lies ahead.
