Join the Investors' Circle

Make the world kinder, wiser, more compassionate

The Center for Healthy Minds seeks to raise $1 million or more annually for the next three years for the Center’s Sustainability Fund.

Members of the Investors’ Circle commit to supporting the Center at a minimum of $100,000 annually for the next three years. The total commitment of $300,000 can be paid over the next three years or made in one payment.

We are looking for a minimum of 10 key investors to join the Investors’ Circle with an initial gift by June 30, 2017.

Activities for Investors’ Circle Members

In addition to shaping the future of the Center for the better in the long-term, members are invited to attend an exclusive, half-day retreat annually with Center Founder Richard Davidson and Investors’ Circle members.

This meeting enables members to collectively review the Center’s outcomes and metrics, discuss the Center’s latest research findings and emerging science ideas, and share well-being practices and tools developed by the Center.

The first retreat will be held in the Fall of 2017.
