General Donation

This journey of raising awareness, challenging injustice, and educating ourselves and others requires a dedicated team. A General Donation to support our operational expenses include rent, utilities, printing, postage, insurance, and other expenses that are constantly on the rise. A contribution to VISIONS’ operational expenses helps the staff keep the doors open and this important and necessary work alive.

Support our Legacy Youth Program

The  Legacy Project is run out of Boston, MA and Fresno, CA with the potential to be replicated in other parts of the US, depending on funding and local interest. Legacy is financially supported by both individuals and private and corporate foundations.  Your donation would support  the students’ stipend, meals, field trip transportation, supplies, and per participant cost for our yearly community engagement event.

Scholarships for VISIONS Anti-Oppression Workshops

In this time of globalization and instability, it is vital that as many people as possible learn new skills of recognizing, understanding and appreciating differences. We are seeking funding to provide scholarships so that individuals can attend VISIONS’ workshops irrespective of their ability to pay.

Dr. Josephine “Jo” Bowens Lewis Memorial Scholarship

When inspirational psychotherapist and change agent Josephine Bowens Lewis departed the earth realm (July 9, 2014) VISIONS’ commitment to sustaining her legacy of love and transformation emerged from so many of our supporters! This scholarship fund will provide scholarships to participants in VISIONS PACE workshops which include an introduction to Transactional Analysis (TA). They will also provide scholarships to certified TA workshops that we hold regularly to build on this learning. Dr. Lewis was a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and a Certified Teaching and Supervisory Member of the International Transactional Analysis Association. Your donations will directly impact others’ journey in becoming agents of change.

Scholarship for a Community Nonprofit Intervention/Consultation

Many nonprofit groups urgently seek VISIONS’ services but cannot afford it. School systems, youth groups, police and fire departments, hospitals, social service agencies and faith based organizations all want the benefit that VISIONS could have on their diverse workforces, institutional policies and client services.

VISIONS Endowment Fund

The VISIONS endowment fund helps provide funding for VISIONS and its programs in perpetuity. There are many ways to make an endowment gift - an outright contribution, a multi-year pledge, or donations of stocks and mutual funds. For more information please email Nikki Glass.
