This spring, help us grow!

Since 2018, the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab has grown the field of spiritual care through research, education, and professional support. We continue to provide training and resources to chaplains, educators, and those interested in the work of spiritual care in a variety of ways, including our popular webinar series, the Field Guide for Aspiring Chaplains, our growing eBook catalog, and networking opportunities.

Chaplains are a vital support to individuals and communities in need, including some of the most difficult moments in life, including illness, death, and trauma. The Lab is dedicated to enhancing access to this life-giving support and helping chaplains do that work better.

From our academic background, the Lab conducts groundbreaking research on spiritual care today, like our recent exploration of the public’s engagement with chaplains across the united States. We also conduct research on specific areas of chaplaincy, like our recent exploration of the gap between chaplaincy education and what is needed on the ground today. While much of our research is grant-funded, your individual support for the Lab helps us get this research into the hands of those who can put it to use today.

Our webinars, eBooks, and other resources help chaplains both experienced and new to provide better care to those they serve. Our Field Guide series, as well as individual consultation, helps many who are considering chaplaincy as a career but may face a variety of barriers to education, field training, and beyond. We also help as many chaplains as we can who reach out to us directly for information, connection to colleagues, and more. By helping the Lab grow, you are supporting the development of compassionate and skilled caregivers who make a positive and life-affirming impact in the lives of others.

Please help us grow! Your support directly drives innovation, and 100% of every dollar goes to the work of the Lab.

Matching gift offered!

Thanks to a generous gift from a Lab supporter, every dollar donated (up to $10,000) will be matched with $2 -- meaning we could get $30,000 closer to our goal. Please give generously and help this match!
