Non-profit organization

The Transcendental Meditation technique is taught in the U.S. by Maharishi Foundation USA, a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization. All revenues from course fees go entirely to support the organization’s educational and charitable initiatives in the U.S. and around the world.

As a non-profit, the Foundation has no owners or shareholders. No board members or other individuals profit financially from the organization’s programs. Employees—including senior management—receive salaries well below the U.S. median salaries for their position. The organization is audited annually by an independent CPA firm.

Helping those in need

Over the past several years, full TM scholarships have been given to more than 500,000 at-risk students, military veterans and others in need through partnerships with other non-profit organizations and foundations.

Maharishi Foundation USA works closely with the David Lynch Foundation on a wide range of charitable projects. The video below highlights some of these projects.
