An important aspect of fulfilling the mission of PE is to contribute back to its community in a meaningful way. We hold a fairly broad view of who and how we can serve, although our preference leans toward supporting the arts, food sovereignty projects and small business setup/assistance. Our philanthropy can take many forms and might include supporting a Kickstarter, helping a musician record an album or providing professional services to a business start up or project. While there will be an application process to come, it is much more likely that we will come across one another in community. This further supports our belief that we are all closely connected as individuals and together we will thrive.
