In this capacity, AI will accept donations of land and real property and will conservatively manage the donated property in accordance with it principals of sustainability, abundance and social responsibility. It is anticipated that reasonably small percentages of the land will be used for sustainable agriculture and communities, while the majority is maintained in its natural state, subject to the terms of a conservation easement.

The AWE Institute in conjunction with AWE Communications will also offer courses and certifications online including those described in this plan such as AWE Consciousness, Abundance Series, Wellness Series, Enlightenment Series, Executive Oracle and Sustainability Series. AI will seek to partner with accredited schools to offer its courses and/or apply for its own accreditation.
