Home > Donate to the Marcus J. Borg Foundation

The Marcus J. Borg Foundation depends on donors like you to help us deliver quality programs. In a late journal entry Marcus reflected on three things he thought were essential to a more authentic contemporary faith: empathy, compassion, and gratitude. The Foundation is committed to these values as we continue the conversation that Marcus began.

Marcus dedicated his last book Convictions to his two beloved dogs.

And to Henry and Abbey our slate and blonde Glen of Imaal terriers. Described as a ‘very spiritual breed,’ they have kept me company in my study as I wrote this book.”

With them in mind, we have named donation categories accordingly. We look forward to you joining our efforts as we explore what it means to be Christian in the 21st Century.
