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

Our Goal


Our goal is to raise funds to reach even more people. 

For the first five years of the organization's existence, the costs of running URBAN CONFESSIONAL were covered personally by founder Benjamin Mathes, which was 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, and 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.
