Among the challenges Covid has brought to society is the extraordinary financial challenge to non-profits.

The effect on MIU has been a great reduction in the number of students on campus, especially international students. Increased growth of online enrollment is encouraging. This rapid expansion brings with it increased costs for additional faculty training, administrative support, and online teaching equipment.

In giving to MIU now, you benefit MIU and may also benefit personally or for your company from the temporary increases in tax incentives to donors helping charitable organizations.

“There is no better place to show gratitude for Maharishi’s extraordinary programs. I highly recommend giving to MIU to support the TM organization and help further knowledge and evolution in our dear world.” – Tony Warren

“I have always wanted only the best for this amazing university. Whether I give money, service to others, or simply a smile and a kind word, I am always thinking, ‘thank you,’ MIU.” – Diane Fenwick
