A Big Thank You to EANT, Our Fiscal Sponsor from April 2012 to July 31, 2014

The Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition

In April of 2012, EPP  began the process of applying for tax-exempt status with the IRS, which will allow donors to make tax-deductible donations to EPP. While we awaited official government approval, The Enneagram Association in the Narrative Tradition (EANT) stepped forward and offered its own standing as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, to act as a "Fiscal Sponsor" to EPP. During that temporary role, EANT received donations on EPP's behalf and distributed funds to EPP to be used to further its mission.

Founded by Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD, EANT is an international association for people who have studied the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition, whose mission is to take the Enneagram to the world with strong ethical standards, using the "Narrative Tradition" as the primary method for teaching the Enneagram.

The Narrative Tradition emphasizes the importance of allowing people to speak for themselves. This is especially true for the incarcerated, who deserve – like all of us – to be understood and known as more than just a type, more than whatever they have done.

In what feels like standing directly in the Universal flow of giving and receiving, EPP and EANT have enjoyed a mutually supportive partnership. It was an honor to have been supported by EANT in such a substantial and magnanimous way as we took the necessary steps towards standing with fiscal independence and autonomy.
