The Gloria Hocking Fund for Peace

Gloria was a major supporter of Creativity for Peace for 11 years before her death in 2018. She taught workshops for campers, hosted Young Leaders and volunteer events at her homes in Dallas and Santa Fe, introduced the organization to many friends, forged a relationship between Creativity for Peace and St. Michael and All Angels Church in Dallas, organized fundraisers, and much more.

In recognition of her passionate advocacy, her abiding belief and hope for peace in the Holy Land, and her warm and loving relationships with our Board, staff, volunteers, and young women, Creativity for Peace has established the Gloria Hocking Fund for Peace in her memory.

This fund will underwrite the costs of training high school-age girls from Palestine and Israel to be leaders and peacemakers, including our summer peace intensive (camp) in New Mexico, two-years of seminars in the Middle East, and Young Leader speaking tours in the United States.

Gifts to the fund may be made on the donation form at the top of the page or mailed to Creativity for Peace, 369 Montezuma Avenue, no. 566, Santa Fe, NM 87501.

Leslie Nathanson Juris Leadership Fund

Leslie Nathanson Juris was a founding Creativity for Peace Board member who served from 2006 to 2010. As an emeritus Board member she continues to play an active role as mentor, advisor, fund- and friend-raiser.

In 2010, in recognition of Leslie's extraordinary contributions, the Board of Directors established the Leslie Nathanson Juris Leadership Fund to support innovative leadership training for our young women in Palestine and Israel—programs that develop our participants' skills and influence.

The fund has supported projects such as:

  • Dialogue workshops with young Arab and Jewish women from Acco, Israel, facilitated by Creativity for Peace Young Leaders
  • Transforming Conflict workshops with young American women, developed and facilitated by Young Leaders
  • Training for Young Leaders to work as dialogue facilitators, project managers, and public speakers
