Why is Somatic Experiencing International a nonprofit?

SEI was founded with a simple vision of transforming lives through healing trauma. To do that, we need to reach beyond training and offer education and outreach to communities who may not yet have the resources to bring SE into their lives. Through scholarships, public health and community engagement initiatives, and promoting research in SE and related modalities, we hope to create structures of support for traumatized people worldwide. To do that, we need your help. Our nonprofit status means that we are dedicated to serving our community and responding to its needs first and foremost. Support from our community in the form of donations allows us to expand access to our offerings, promote innovation and discovery, and make a difference in the lives of traumatized individuals around the world.

What does a donation to Somatic Experiencing International do?

Donating to SEI’s Annual Fund funds our operations, allows us to provide access to our programming worldwide, and funds new initiatives to deepen our impact on the lives of our community through SE.

What’s the difference between donating to the Annual Fund and donating to a specific funding need?

Annual Fund donations are known as “unrestricted”, meaning they are flexible and can be used to best meet needs as they arise. Donating to a scholarship fund, crisis relief fund, or another fund for one specific priority makes the funds “restricted”, which means they cannot be used for any other purpose for the cause for which they were donated.

What other ways are there to donate?

Besides traditional cash gifts, SEI also accepts stock, cryptocurrency, and planned and matching gifts. We also welcome partnerships or gifts made in-kind. For information about any of these options, please contact our Director of Business Development and Fundraising, Paul Beverly.

Can I set my donations to recur automatically?

Yes! By setting your giving frequency to monthly (or your preferred frequency), your donation will automatically be made at your requested frequency using the card you have on file.

I don’t want my information to be made public, can I donate anonymously?

Yes, if you check the box “I wish to remain anonymous” on our giving site, your name will not be shared with the public when acknowledging your donation. However, we will still ask for your information internally so we can properly thank you for your kind contribution!

I have questions about my gift not listed here, who should I contact?

You can email the Business Development and Fundraising department at charitablecontributions@traumahealing.org for general inquiries: a member of our staff will connect with you shortly from there!
