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.   We are passionate about supporting educators in bringing mindfulness- and brain-based social and emotional learning and conflict resolution to their students.  We believe this work can change children’s lives for the better and help our schools become more inclusive and positive places.  Please join us on this journey!

Peace of Mind was chosen as “one of the best” nonprofits in the DC area in 2020.

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 the highest quality, cutting-edge curricula, training, and other resources to support our students, educators and families.  Your support really matters.

We welcome support in many ways:

Financial Contributions.  We welcome financial contributions through our website here or by checks made out to Peace of Mind Inc.   If you are interested in donating appreciated securities, please contact our Executive Director Cheryl Dodwell.

We are committed to taking care of our donors with integrity and appreciation.  We do not share our donors’ contact information with anyone outside of our organization.  We will only publicly announce your support with your permission.

Our EIN # is 47-1449614.  Our address is Peace of Mind Inc, 5540 Nevada Ave NW, Washington DC 20015.   Here is our 501(c)(3) Determination letter.
