Donate to Maharishi Purusha Program

What we need is to perpetuate this program and have Purusha permanently established on earth. —Maharishi

Donations to Support our Monthly Expenses

The success of the Maharishi Purusha Program depends upon the financial support we receive from our donors. Your donations provide the day-to-day support which allows us to strengthen coherence in world consciousness and help create Heaven on Earth.

Whether you know someone on the PurushaSM program or not, your support is very much appreciated. We especially appreciate ongoing monthly donations, which provide a stable basis of support. See below for how to donate by credit card or check.

Maharishi Purusha Program is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt educational organization and donations are tax deductible. All donations go into a general fund which is under the full control of Maharishi Purusha Program. In addition to personal donations or donations from companies by credit card or check, the following options are available.

Giving Stocks and other Appreciated Assets

By giving appreciated assets the donor receives a tax deduction for the current value of the gift and avoids the capital gains on the growth of the asset. Examples of appreciated assets that can be donated are: Stocks, real estate, precious metals, life insurance, IRAs, business interest, partnership interest, art works and other types of personal property. Please contact our Donations Office for how to make donations of appreciated assets.

Gifts through Payroll Deductions and Matching Funds

Many employers will take a specific amount from your check each pay period and make a donation to a charity of your choice. Some employers match some or the entire donation. Others may have tax-efficient ways to make this gift. Please ask your employer about programs for charitable contributions.
