Support the IBI! Invite Chaos, Trust Complexity, Fund Systems Change.

If you are interested in participating in this important research, we would be grateful for your contribution. 

IBI exists outside the academic realm; consequently, many grants are not assigned to, or available to, groups like ours.  

We strongly believe the project of the Institute is an appropriate way to study the whole system, but without support, this work is not possible.

The Institute's focus is cast in multiple directions, meaning we are outside the direct deliverable stream that typically supports specific areas of research. 

We offer two pathways for funding.

1. The first is a direct way to make a small contribution, through PayPal. We are currently able to receive donations via PayPal through our US Fiscal Sponsor, the Bateson Idea Group.

Please click here to make a contribution through their secure Stripe account.

You may contact Branden Barber directly at, who can arrange contributions outside of Stripe.

2. The second way to help fund our work for those who would like to become a major donor to IBI, or who wish to help support a particular project, would be to simply have a real conversation.

To do that, please contact Branden Barber:
