Shared Ground is a whole greater than the sum of its parts. There is work that can only be done together, in-person, and in a space that is shared by all of us. Community care is the response to the crises of our times and now is the time to dream, design, and engage in meaningful work that is participatory, grassroots, and directly alive!

Join our active community in Denver's Northside neighborhood to address the realities of our current world to create a vibrant, resilient future.

  • What you give

    It takes a village to nurture Shared Ground. Each one of us has something meaningful to contribute towards our climate resilience congregation. Here is what we ask of members:

  • Monthly financial contribution

    Every member makes a monthly financial contribution that is meaningful for their own situation. A member with access to intergenerational wealth and a secure, salaried job might give $100 or more per month, while a single parent making an hourly wage might give $1. Each is equally meaningful and sacred.

  • Monthly contribution of time

    As an organization led and run by volunteers, we believe in sharing the labor equitably. As part of your membership, you're invited to find a role that fits with your own schedule and superpowers, whether that's sweeping the floors, balancing the books, or spreading the word. Role opportunities are constantly evolving and you'll get a chance to see open roles when you join.

  • Following our community agreements and policies

    We democratically develop our norms and when you choose to join as a member you agree to support and abide by those agreements. You can read our policies in our handbook.
