The Parapsychological Association (PA)
recently received a generous donation from Mrs. Marion Roller to establish
a new endowment for research. The Gilbert Roller Fund supports scientific
field investigations into macroscopic psychokinetic phenomena such as
those reported in sitter-groups, séances, and poltergeist activity,
and/or theoretical approaches to help explain the nature of such large-scale
Between now and May 1, 2009,
Mrs. Roller will match, dollar for dollar, any donations made to the
Gilbert Roller Fund to support this
important line of research. Traditionally most of the modest
support for parapsychological research has come from individuals and
foundations with the vision and courage needed to support science on
the cutting edge. Your contributions will enable qualified researchers
with professional knowledge of past investigations of this type to continue
to explore large-scale psychokinetic phenomena in the real world.
The PA provides a professional "home"
for scientists and scholars around the world who dare to investigate
phenomena shunned by mainstream science. Donations can be made to the Gilbert Roller Fund electronically by visiting their members site, or by check mailed to the Parapsychological
Association at P.O. Box 24173, Columbus, OH 43224. The PA is a 501(c)(3)
charitable organization and donations are tax-deductible in the USA.
