The past year has been a watershed year for mindfulness. Interest is blowing up, expanding in all directions. Now the cheerleading phase is over and we need to get down to business. It’s no longer a question of whether mindfulness can help but of whether we can scale up to meet the need with quality and integrity intact. The time to do so is now!
With all this energy buzzing, Mindful is ending the year on a high note, and with an expanding and highly engaged community of readers.
Mindful needs your help to make strategic investments in systems, staff and infrastructure. As the demand increases for more quality content, we need to build up our capacity.
The New Year is shaping up to be full of nearly overwhelming opportunities for Mindful. Now that we’re acknowledged as the go-to source for beautifully presented, accessible, and authoritative content, more and more people are turning to us for content collaborations. As a mission-driven nonprofit, it’s sometimes hard for us to scale up quickly enough to serve such a rapidly expanding need.
We are very close to meeting this challenge and turning these opportunities into a sustainable nonprofit operation—in only our third full year of operation. But now Mindful needs your help to make strategic investments in systems, staff and infrastructure. As the demand increases for more quality content, we need to build up our capacity.
As a nonprofit, Mindful can’t go out to the capital markets and raise this new investment; it comes to us in the form of your support. We need your help to make these strategic investments—to bring you more of the Mindful content you’ve come to love, to capitalize on these new opportunities and collaborations, and to make sure we do all this with the very best quality that we’re known for.
So many of you have been a part of Mindful’s success so far, with your subscriptions, web viewing and donations. We’ve achieved a lot, but this next phase may be the most critical of all. If you’ve ever considered donating to Mindful, now is the time to do so.
Help mindfulness flourish by supporting Mindful. Donate today to help Mindful build the capacity to meet this explosion of interest in the mindfulness.
