For the Synergia team, your contribution is a profound expression of both reciprocity and solidarity.  Until now, Synergia has been largely a volunteer effort. Your contribution will enable us to hire a younger and more diverse team of people to help us carry on Synergia’s transition and systems change work in the years ahead.
