We are pleased to accept donations (of any amount) to support the research of Dr Stephen W. Porges at the University of North Carolina.  All donations are tax-deductible and the total donation will be allocated to the research fund.  A top priority of the fund will be to support a research clinic in which the Listening Project Protocol can be delivered, evaluated, and improved.  The Listening Project Protocol is the intervention that Dr. Porges developed to reduce auditory hypersensitivities and to stimulate the Social Engagement System (see Porges et al., 2013).

If you would like to donate via check (preferred method), please mail your check to Jennifer Gibson at the University of North Carolina (mailing address below), with "Donation to Porges research" written on the Memo line.  Additionally, please send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
