How to Make a Gift


Thank you for your interest in supporting the work of the UVA Mindfulness Center. Your gift will, among other things, provide funds for Mindfulness scholarships and research initiatives.


Our philosophy is that the skills taught in the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program are of benefit to anyone regardless of socio-economic status. Our commitment to this philosophy is demonstrated in part through our scholarship program, made possible through donations from individuals like you.


A dedicated team of UVA faculty is seeking support for mindfulness research. Our studies evaluate mindfulness for treating conditions such as chronic pain, digestive disorders and heart palpitations. Studies measure physiological changes, such as heart rate variability and inflammatory cytokines as well quality of life and symptom reduction. Our interdisciplinary team complements quantitative data with qualitative studies of patient narratives to document the profound life changes that can occur with the practice of mindfulness. Other research initiatives include studying the role of patient beliefs and individual differences in healthcare outcomes.
