Fundraising Campaign

Project Presence is a 501c (3) non-for-profit organization whose mission is to aid in the co-creation of healthy, meaningful, and supportive relationships through the cultivation of PRESENCE in the everyday lives of individuals and communities. Project Presence is currently working with educational institutions, criminal justice systems, and community based social service programs. The trainings we provide assist in ensuring that community organizations remain sustainable systems of CARE.

Our organization is guided by practices derived from the fields of humanistic psychology, mind-body medicine, somatic psychology, narrative medicine, whole-person education pedagogies, social-emotional learning, interpersonal neurobiology, integrative nutrition, health and wellness coaching, creative expressions therapy (art, drama, music) and East Asian medicine.


All proceeds will go toward biofeedback and stress reduction tools and supplies needed for the community work that Project Presence provides. One of the tools needed are HeartMath Institute’s emWave2 devices. The emWave2 is a unique biofeedback training system, with researched-based tools and games, that helps build inner resilience to effectively help people deal with stressful feelings and life challenges--just Five to 10 minutes of daily practice can provide greater ease and mental and emotional flexibility and more positive attitudes, emotions and perspectives.

Donate: You can donate money to our organization by going to www.projectpresence.org or by participating in our Resiliency, Empowerment, and Self Care Activist Training where the tuition will go directly towards raising these funds.

Thank you for your support.
