Giving Tuesday is December 1st.  Please join us!

Tending to our students’ social and emotional needs has never been more important. Please contribute on Giving Tuesday to help us continue to provide low and no-cost Mindfulness-based Social Emotional Learning resources to the schools and students who need them most now.

Our Giving Tuesday goal: $2,500.   We can do this with your help!

  1. Donate here today to help get our campaign off to a good start.
  2. Spread the word on social media on December 1st! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram (@TeachPeaceofMind)  and please share our posts and encourage others to support Peace of Mind.

We’re thrilled to be collaborating again with the Catalogue for Philanthropy on Giving Tuesday.  The Catalogue is hosting several “power hours” during Giving Tuesday (December 1st).    The nonprofit with the most donors during each of these hours will receive an additional $1,000 donation.  We would love to “win” one of these hours – both to support our fundraising goal AND to broaden our base of support.  With your help, we can do it!

After Giving Tuesday, we will be sharing our 2020 Annual Report with all of our donors along with on overview of our goals and needs for 2021.

Why Support Peace of Mind?

Peace Teacher Linda Ryden, founder of Peace of Mind, talks about the increased importance of our work now for our kids.

Peace of Mind Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation based in Washington D.C., a member of the Catalogue for Philanthropy’s Class of 2020-2021.   We are passionate about supporting educators in bringing mindfulness- and brain-based social and emotional learning, conflict resolution and social justice work to their students – and this work has never been more imporant.  Peace of Mind skills help students and school communities address the impact of the two pandemics we are all facing: covid-19 and systemic injustice.

We are a small organization operating with integrity, passion, a dedicated volunteer board, and a very small staff.  We are working hard to build a solid financial foundation for Peace of Mind Inc that includes income from operations supplemented by grant and individual donor support.  This foundation is critical to allowing us to continue to develop and share at low or no cost the highest quality, cutting-edge curricula, training, and other resources to support our students, educators and families.  Your support really matters.
