Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu® Outreach
2017 Update

The Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Foundation and Outreach was founded in 2001. The MBJSJO is fiscally sponsored by the United Charitable which is a registered 501 (C) (3) public charity. The purpose is to expand the work of Mary Burmeister and the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy through contributions that support medical research; educational development that creates different avenues of presentation including language translations, implementation of scholarships that base selection on merit, need or minority status; selection of individuals to receive Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments; financial support for Jin Shin Jyutsu associations, seminars, correspondence courses and outreach programs to developing countries.

The Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Outreach offers tuition assistance for 5-Day Basic Seminars in the form of partial and full tuition grants to low income individuals. Since joining with the United Charitable in 2011 the MBJSJO has given over 90 grants that total nearly $68,000 in grant funds. Grants have been awarded in the United States in AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, HI, IA, KS, KY, MA, MI, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OH, OR, TN, TX, VT, WA and WI. Grants have also been given outside of the US in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, England, Germany, India, Israel, Latvia,  Philippines, South Africa and the Netherlands. In 2015 we awarded $6,000 in grant funds and in 2016 we have awarded just over $7,000 in grant funds.

The Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Outreach is giving free educational self-help DVDs to low income individuals, practitioners who work with low income individuals and organizations that serve low income individuals. The DVD is titled Simply Help Yourself and it show shows self-help exercises for minimizing side effects of conventional medical treatment, information about our fingers and hands, self-help exercises for general harmony and exercises that can be done with a partner. To receive a Simply Help Yourself DVD, send a written inquiry with information about yourself to the organization to the Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Outreach. Any donor who contributes $60 or more will receive a free copy of the dvd as a token for their gift.

We are pleased to announce a new grant that we have available for hearing impaired students. Beginning this year and through 2019 we will award grant funds to students who apply for grant assistance that meet our requirements and have a hearing impairment. The grant pays for tuition assistance and will provide for a signer in a 5 Day Basic Seminar. We would like to acknowledge and thank Connie Rubin and the Elsie Gelpi Rubin Foundation for making this grant possible.
