The Fetzer Franklin Fund was established by the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust, with the support of the John E. Fetzer Institute, to advance the scientific exploration of a relationship-centered view of reality. The Trust is administered by Bruce Fetzer as President and CEO and actively overseen by a Board of Trustees, which is chaired by Lou Leeburg, to set the direction for the scientific legacy of the organization’s founder John E. Fetzer. Additional members of the Board of Trustees are: Tom Beaver, Bruce Carlson, Michael Gergeley, Jeremy Waletzky, and Jan Walleczek. The Trustees of the John E. Fetzer Memorial Trust guide and oversee the critical process of translating the founder’s original intent, and his core interest in science and spirituality, into a sustainable scientific research program for the 21st century. The result of this process is the mission statement, and the scientific program, of the Fetzer Franklin Fund as presented in this website.
I have known many people whose success was primarily due to their showing loving concern for others. They exhibited the qualities of love without ever defining it. They would be reticent to do so. I have no such reservation. Love is the core energy that rules everything. It's the force field... of creation. Love is the one ingredient that holds ALL together. 'God is love' is the summary.

In their guidance of the Fetzer Franklin Fund, the President, the Chairman, and the additional members of the Board of Trustees, are motivated by the recognition that only an intellectually-credible, and methodologically-rigorous, approach to exploring the extreme frontiers of science could make a difference to the mainstream of science. Importantly, to make a contribution to scientific knowledge in the academic mainstream was also the intent of founder John E. Fetzer, who himself was an engineer. Throughout his life time, John E. Fetzer maintained contacts, and engaged in conversations, with visionary thinkers and researchers at academic institutions. For more information about the John E.
