BENEFITING: BODHISATTVA YOUTH OF AMERIC INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 30, 2017
Bodhi Academy is a unique nonprofit afterschool center that supports K-12 students in academic and social-emotional development through daily mindfulness practice. Motivated by a growing body of research indicating the positive effects of mindfulness on youth, the academy was started by full-time professionals and mindfulness practitioners with the help of the community. In addition to receiving academic tutoring, students enjoy guided meditation, deep relaxation, mindful snacking, and other enriching activities.
Our student body has grown consistently since our founding, as has interest in our programs. However, our revenue from our intial promotional pricing is not enough to offset costs associated with starting an afterschool center with unique programs such as ours. We need funds to help cover staff wages, taxes, rent, supplies and other operational expenses. In order to continue our program at its present level of quality, we need to raise $10,500 by the end of June 2017. We ask our families, friends, Bodhi Academy supporters, and the broader community to help us support the center’s vision of providing a unique, important, and mindfulness-integrated learning environment for our children. Please make a donation that you are comfortable with, anywhere from $10 to $100. Every bit helps us reach our fundraising campaign goal.
