Donations & Grants
”I have an ongoing dream that those who want to work with me can – regardless of finances” – Laura Washington, ND
Donations and grants are used to provide naturopathic and energy healing sessions and yoga classes. Access to resources such as these, supporting health and well-being, should be available to all. Luminance Yoga Classes are offered at the greatly discounted rate of $5/class to make them accessible to all who would like to participate. As even $5 is more than some can afford, I also provide a coupon code for students to participate for free. This donation/grants page exists to help make services available to more people and to share how these donations and grants are used.
Thank you so much for your support!
100% of your donation is used to provide health and wellness services to someone who otherwise would not have access to these resources. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be used well!
How are Donations and Grants Used?
In April of 2020 I received a $2,500 grant from the Portland Small Business Relief Fund. With it I chose to offer at least an equivalent amount of services at no cost. The response was immediate and my schedule quickly filled up. In October 2020 a second grant was received for $10,000. As I update this post on October 22, 2020, I have provided $6,947 in free and discounted services. Below is a breakdown of those services.
- Total Appointments – 56
- Of those 56 appointments 8 were New Client Appointments
- 4 BIPOC (black, indigenous, and other people of color)
- 1 PLWD (people living with disabilities)
- 48 sessions were Follow Up Appointments
- 10 BIPOC (black, indigenous, and other people of color)
- 19 PLWD (people living with disabilities)
Recipients of grant supported services have also included people who have lost their jobs due to the 2020 pandemic, have domestic insecurity, and a single mother trying to finish school. If you are interested in receiving grant supported services please contact me!
I also continue to offer a coupon code to be used for free classes. As of today (September 15, 2020) 24 yoga classes have been provided at no cost. If you are wanting to take a class and cannot afford the $5 fee please use the code VIRTUALYOGA on checkout!
