by Misophonia International

The International Misophonia Foundation is happy to announce that we are officially registered as a 501(c)(3)organization. We are so happy to continue on this journey for misophonia and sensory advocacy, and very thankful for those of you who have supported us in these first few months of forming our foundation. We are pleased to announce that all donations which happened prior to our filing will be tax deductible, and we will send you official receipts within the next week. We are also excited that this tax status has come right before Giving Tuesday, an honored tradition where post Black Friday, donations are given to organizations with a charity status. This gift helps our organization grow and is tax deductible. The following are our goals for our foundation:

– Developing a web show for persons with misophonia, loved-ones, researchers and clinicians that is widely accessible and free 
– Providing a Clinician Directory for persons with misophonia to find clinicians
– Creating resources for researchers, clinicians, and sufferers of misophonia
– Contacting developers of operating systems, gaming systems, software, websites, and other technology to advocate for more sensory friendly design
– Planning an in person conference for research / community
– Expanding research goals and filling the gaps in existing misophonia literature
– Developing books and materials related to misophonia
– Consulting with other Misophonia organizatons, researchers and practitioners

Providing reviews on products that might be helpful to persons with misophonia
