Support Us
SMI aspires to make Sarasota a happier, healthier place to live. We can only do that with your help. Your giving helps us pay the rent for the SMI programs at the UU Church and provide training and support to SMI volunteers who keep our programs running, and so much more.

SMI is registered in the State of Florida as a non-profit organization and is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Tax ID #31024).  All donations to SMI are fully tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. 


We have several ways that you can donate.

Amazon Smile:


A new way to support us is through the Amazon Smile Program.  When you shop at Amazon through this link, SMI gets 0.5% of any purchase you make!  Click here  to start shopping.

Our Generosity Bowl
If everyone were to donate just $5 - $10 when they visit, our expenses ​would be covered.

​​​One-time ‘No Fee’ Donation via PayPal Giving Fund

Every penny that you donate using PayPal Giving Fund will go to Sarasota Mindfulness Institute, unlike other payment services, which charge a fee – typically a small percentage – to process the donation. You must have a PayPal account to use this service, and it does not support recurring donations, but we hope that you consider these minor inconveniences compared to the benefit of 100% of your donation going to SMI.

​​​​Donations by check can be sent to:


Sarasota Mindfulness Institute
PO Box 15168
​Sarasota, Fl 34277-1168​

One-time Donation by Credit Card or Recurring Donations through PayPal

A PayPal account is not necessary for credit or debit card donations. Please note that PayPal charges a small processing fee for handling these donations when using this method.
