Our Partners


This work is made possible thanks to financial support from The John Templeton Foundation.

The John Templeton Foundation

Amplify Hope is funded by The John Templeton Foundation, which serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to the Big Questions of human purpose and ultimate reality. They support research on subjects ranging from complexity, evolution, and infinity to creativity, forgiveness, love, and free will. They encourage civil, informed dialogue among scientists, philosophers, and theologians and between such experts and the public at large, for the purposes of definitional clarity and new insights.

The Foundation’s vision is derived from the late Sir John Templeton’s optimism about the possibility of acquiring “new spiritual information” and from his commitment to rigorous scientific research and related scholarship. The Foundation’s motto,“How little we know, how eager to learn,” exemplifies their support for open-minded inquiry and their hope for advancing human progress through breakthrough discoveries.
