Donate & Support AmSAT's Goals
AmSAT's mission is to establish the Alexander Technique as a basic and recognized resource for health, productivity, and well-being.
AmSAT maintains the nation's highest standards for teacher training, certification and membership and maintains affiliation with similar credentialing bodies worldwide.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Access (DEIBA) is supported in all parts of the organization and its programs.
In addition to providing educational support services for its members, AmSAT is a public resource for information about the Alexander Technique.
AmSAT also supports research on the Alexander Technique by its members. In 2012 AmSAT established a Research Committee to create and administer a grant program funding research projects by teaching members of AmSAT.
We welcome contributions from both AmSAT members and supporters of the Alexander Technique. AmSAT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and you will receive a receipt for your donation from AmSAT for your tax purposes. Your tax-deductible contribution helps AmSAT to further the Alexander Technique through its many efforts. Please contribute today by making a donation or volunteering!
