At Graceful Waves Wellness Center, we believe that ALL people deserve to have access to quality healthcare, and to live vibrant, whole, energized lives! Our care & programs help meet those objectives. However, often our most vulnerable community members struggle financially to access the very care designed to help them flourish. We offer a scholarship program which offsets the cost of care at a time when it’s most needed. Sometimes, a helping-hand – and a more coherent spine and nervous system – can make ALL the difference!
In 2018, we began an ambitious 5-year fundraising goal of 90K to fully fund this Scholarship Program.
As of the end of 2019, we've received the first 10K in funding from 65 generous donors!!!
We still have a long way to go, but with that first 10K in funds we have:
* Provided scholarships for over 400 "Network Spinal " entrainment sessions, making an enormous and sustainable difference for many people!
* Provided over $7500 in additional spinal care through creative exchange, contribution, Graceful Waves business donations and time, and 'barter' – without utilizing donors scholarship funds (or more than 100 additional entrainments).
* Successfully transitioned several clients out of the Scholarship program and into a life chapter of greater resourcefulness, sustainability, and/or improvement in their overall quality of life!

Why Donate NOW?
We have fully utilized the funds we have received!!!
As of this month, we will not be able to continue to offer the Scholarship Program without further funding.
Part of our Center's Mission and Purpose is to help bridge the gaps that occur at sacred junctures in life. One of those gaps can be in finances. Another, is in coherence – both internally, and in connection to the tapestry of threads that weave a community and humanity together. Our care and services help meet coherence objectives beautifully! The care dramatically improves physical, mental, & emotional wellbeing, ability to respond (rather than react) to change/stress, and improve overall quality of life.
However we need YOUR HELP to continue to offer the Scholarship program, and to give it the financial stability to ensure it continues to be available for those who really need it, when they need it.
If you've been following our campaign for a while, you also know we undertook an EXTRAORDINARY leap of faith over the last two years in constructing a NEW BUILDING to house the wellness center, and those benefitting from the scholarship program. The building was COMPLETED in June 2019, and is truly an OUTSTANDING!!!
Check out our Grand Opening video link below, which includes our GRATITUDE TIME CAPSULE READING for all Scholarship Sponsors who donated before our Grand Opening Celebration on August 17th, 2019:
As to be expected, our costs have risen dramatically in order to finance the building. In addition, offering a Scholarship Program of this magnitude simply increases our costs in administration, network infrastructure, fundraising time, and personal/business donations as well to the degree we can. However, we simply don't currently have the resources to personally fund the scholarship program at the scale and capacity that is needed. YOU can help change that!!!
We abide in deep and humble gratitude for your assistance in helping us SERVE OTHERS on a larger scale, and for CONTRIBUTING to a more vibrant community and world!
With Richest Blessings and Gratitude,
