The Sarasota Mindfulness Institute depends on the gracious support of its community to maintain its operations. "Dana" is a Pali and Sanskrit word that describes the practice of cultivating generosity. If you would like to give dana in appreciation for SMI's programs, we have several ways that you can donate.
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.
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 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.
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.
A great 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.
