Donate to ISSTD
Each year, ISSTD offers a number of funding opportunities for research, projects, and education. These opportunities have been made available from the generous donations of ISSTD members and supporters.
Below please find a description of each fund and the link to make a one-time donation. If you are interested in setting up recurring monthly donations to any of the funds below, please contact ISSTD HQ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The General Fund is designed to provide funding to expand ISSTD programming including training and education, research and member benefits. In recent years, money raised from the general fund has been used to introduce new technology platforms, grow online training offerings, expand student and emerging professional membership, and much more!
David Caul Graduate Research Fund
The David Caul Graduate Research Fund is designed to support student research that is primarily concerned with dissociation or closely related topics. The award is named for David Caul, MD, the fourth president of ISSTD in 1987, a dedicated and beloved leader in the field of dissociation.
Education and Research Fund
The Education and Research Fund was created to support education, assessment, treatment, research and awareness of the dissociative disorders. The fund was established to address the lack of education and research in the area of complex trauma and recovery. This fund is available to professionals including clinicians and researchers.
The Fridley Fund was created to defray the cost of one training activity offered through ISSTD for students who would otherwise be unable to obtain appropriate instruction in the treatment of complex trauma and dissociation.
Goodwin Educational Fund
The Goodwin Educational Fund was created to defray the cost of one training activity offered through ISSTD for professionals who would otherwise be unable to obtain appropriate instruction in the treatment of complex trauma and dissociation.
