HeartMath Education Projects
Teaching children emotional and behavioral competencies to improve their chances for success in school and providing educators effective tools for positive classroom outcomes have always been among HeartMath Institute’s (HMI) highest priorities. Through the HeartMath Education Projects fund, we provide heart-focused tools and programs to public and private school regular classrooms and special education and gifted programs. Our commitment extends to teachers, parents, counselors, psychologists, administrators and all who care about children.
One-time gifts of even $10 to the HeartMath Education Projects Fund will help a child start to learn about the qualities of the heart. A new door can open for a child with autism. Teachers can practice simple tools for building and conserving personal energy and becoming more resilient – ultimately leading to a rekindling of their desire to educate young minds.
Recurring donations provide both contributors and HMI flexibility. Donors who participate in Monthly Giving can provide ongoing support while managing an amount that works comfortably in their household budgets. Monthly Giving also ensures the future of the HeartMath Education Projects by affording the ability to plan ahead, which greatly enhances our outreach efforts.
