After celebrating our five-year anniversary, we are seeking outside funds to help keep the Free Listening Movement growing exponentially. 100% of all gifts will go to supporting Urban Confessional in sharing the power of listening worldwide.



Our Goal


Our goal with this campaign is to raise enough funds to reach even more people. 

To date, the costs of running URBAN CONFESSIONAL have been covered personally by founder Benjamin Mathes which is limiting. In order to grow the movement and be able to affect more people around the world, it's imperative that we raise more funds.

The money will go toward covering the costs of running the website, social media, marketing, organizing Free Listening days around the world, as well as producing podcast episodes, free online training content in multiple languages, multilingual downloadable training materials, and creating live events around the world that will bring communities together and help spread the message and practice of non-judgmental compassionate listening.
