Matter of Trust

In 1998, Lisa Craig Gautier co-founded the ecological 501c3 public charity, Matter of Trust (MofT) with her husband Patrice Gautier, (VP at Apple Inc.). MofT simply concentrates on what we all DO want to see in the environment. Lisa has served as its pro-bono President since its inception. MofT programs include the Clean Wave Program (Hair Mats for Oil Spills), (Humanity Adding Solutions Network), (Online Inkind Platform Linking Surplus with Needs), and more. In 2016, she moved MofT into two purchased inspirational, work + exhibit spaces: a model factory and eco-industrial hub (Eco-Hub) and a model renter’s apartment with urban edible garden (Eco-Home). Lisa intentionally designs and implements empowering, inclusive, large-scale, replicable systems. For over 20 years, she has orchestrated enthusiastic in-house teams working on 15 current projects, partnerships on 5 fiscal sponsorships and has over 55 completed programs.
