Clients, Funders & Sponsors

Our funders, clients, sponsors and donors enable us to convene intentional social dialogues to forge the relationships necessary for building effective multi-disciplinary, cross-cultural action plans to meet the challenges confronting our community and beyond.

Over 70% of our income and over 90% of our operating budget derives from client-based work which is rare for a non-profit. We only ask that you, our community, help us make up the 30% funding gap we cannot earn affording us the ability to direct our work where it is needed and not just where it is funded.

Marnita's Table is a 501(c)3. Our 18-year old organization seeks to close gaps across difference through making Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI") / Digital Intentional Social Interaction (“dIZI”) the new pattern for society where Indigenous; Black and brown people; the disenfranchised; the poor; the LGBTQ+; those from historically and currently pushed to the margins communities; the traditionally unheard and excluded are actively and intentionally included and valued at the policy-making and resource-sharing table.
