My Donation History
ACEP is a 501c3 non profit association 


Energy in Action


2017 Highlights
2017 saw many milestones for ACEP and the field of energy psychology. We are proud of these accomplishments, and grateful for the many professionals who helped make them happen.
Access the details here.

ACEP is much more than a membership association. The vision and mission of ACEP is to fundamentally change the way the world deals with trauma, stress and illness through the use of energy psychology and related treatment modalities.


Perhaps you believe that your membership dues, conference fees, and purchase of our on-line courses bring in all the money your organization needs. The reality is that, currently:
  • Membership dues contribute about 25% of the cost of running the organization. 
  • The conference contributes about 10%.
  • Our other training programs contribute another 25%.
That leaves 40% to be covered in other ways, so that we can continue to have a strong organization, able to do all the behind-the-scenes work that goes on every day. Can we count on you to help us raise that 40%?

Imagine a world where it is taken for granted that
  • All soldiers are trained in energy psychology to prevent or treat PTSD

  • People who have survived the trauma of natural disasters (such as Typhoon Haiyan) or terrorist attacks (such as the Boston Marathon bombing) are taught EP as a matter of course

  • College students learn energy psychology as part of a stress management system

  • Energy psychology is part of standard treatment in primary health care

For this vision to become reality a great deal of strategic and collaborative action must take place—and your financial support is essential to helping make this happen.


There is no better value for your money than dollars given to ACEP

Having served on various national, state, and local non-for-profit boards over the years, I was astounded when I joined the ACEP development committee to learn how very small ACEP’s budget is compared to their large and expanding leadership role advancing energy healing strategies. I am honored to give them my volunteer time and the bulk of my charitable giving. There is no better value for your money than dollars given to ACEP.

I know the money I donate to ACEP is used well
I am pleased to donate monthly to ACEP because I am passionate about energy psychology and the amazing benefits it brings to clients and humanity in general. ACEP holds stewardship of energy psychology in all its forms and modalities, promoting research, providing educational resources, wonderful conferences, and support to those who wish to learn and practice EP professionally.

ACEP is an astonishing international organization, its heart, soul, and vision coherently aligned in the mission of making these remarkable resources available to as many people as possible. I know that the money and time I donate to ACEP is used well and supports the hard work of the staff in spreading something truly good in the world.

No single person could have achieved some of the things that ACEP has
The value of ACEP to the energy psychology community is beyond measure. As just one example, no single person could have achieved APA approval for EP. The ACEP staff pulled together the talent, knowledge, and dedication to accomplish this enormous milestone. The visibility and credibility that EP has received from this and other efforts benefit all of us, both directly and indirectly. I can now imagine a day when energy therapies will be part of the standard of care in psychotherapy, counseling, coaching and medicine. That's why I choose to support ACEP with money as well as time.

I appreciate all that I receive from ACEP
I support ACEP financially because I believe in and use energy psychotherapy and ACEP supports me. I appreciate learning about the original research ACEP funds, the dissemination of information from other studies, the educational opportunities ACEP provides, and learning how other psychotherapists and coaches utilize EP from their blogs. These benefits require additional funds from donations. I so appreciate all that I receive from ACEP that I donate both my time and funds to insure ever-greater membership rewards!

ACEP offers education and legitimacy to us all
ACEP gives us research to help us explain this amazing stuff we do with "regular folks", provides us a wonderful conference to gather at and learn the latest cool stuff and offers education and legitimacy to us all. I am proud and overjoyed to make a monthly contribution to ACEP. I owe it so much.

Tithing is based on the principle that you give back to the organization that nurtures you
ACEP feeds and nurtures me; and ACEP feeds and nurtures all of us – psychologically, socially and spiritually. Many religions teach the value of tithing. Tithing is based on the principle that you tithe, or give back, to whatever organization feeds and nurtures you spiritually. Contributing a small amount every month is just one way I can give back, and help to share our community with others.

Six ways you can donate to help make the ACEP vision a reality

ACEP's Highest Need

These donations are earmarked to increase ACEP's capacity to do more to support the growth of energy psychology in the world. This fund includes donations from what was known as the Plate is Full campaign.

Harvey Baker Research Fund 

These donations are earmarked exclusively for energy psychology research. As ACEP raises sufficient money in this category, awards are given out for specific research projects. ACEP has supported over 9 studies so far that are changing the scientific landscape. ACEP only pays for direct costs and does not pay indirect costs when awarding their grants

Humanitarian Fund
These donations are earmarked exclusively for humanitarian aid. They are either used to fund ACEP-sponsored humanitarian projects or given to support other EP-based humanitarian projects sponsored by others. For example, ACEP helped sponsor work with Rwandan orphans, teaching them simple techniques for healing trauma.


Scholarship Fund
These donations are earmarked exclusively for scholarships for the ACEP conference and/or other ACEP sponsored trainings.

Gift of ACEP Membership
ACEP membership can be a wonderful gift for someone who is interested in energy psychology. And the annual membership cost is reasonable: $125 USA, $120 Canada, $100 for Europe.

Remember ACEP in Your Will
We invite you to consider including a bequest to ACEP in your will or trust – particularly if you are creating or revising it. It's an easy way to help ensure the continuity of your organization, dedicated to increasing the credibility, research and use of energy psychology throughout the world.

Bequests, like other donations, can be earmarked for Highest Need, Research, Scholarship and/or Humanitarian funds. To make a bequest, or for more detailed information, please contact our executive director, Bob Schwarz.
