Donations

Welcome to the Donations Page
for MIU’s Exciting New Leadership Programs

Today, more than ever before, the world needs leaders. Enlightened leaders — world citizens dedicated to the welfare of their fellow human beings and committed to creating a peaceful, prosperous, thriving planet.

Would you like to help a new generation of young people receive the training they need to play this role?
Then you’ve come to the right place.

Starting in 2021–2022, MIU will offer two new academic programs:

Each program will give students the knowledge, skills, and experience they need for enlightened leadership.

We expect these programs to attract students from around the world — smart, passionate young people who may already be playing leadership roles in their home countries and who want to build their leadership abilities.

But many of these young people will need financial support to come to the United States and enroll at MIU.

Two ways you can support:

Donate to the Enlightened Leadership Endowment Fund. These funds will be preserved and protected, with interest income used exclusively for scholarships for these programs.

Donate directly to Enlightened Leader Student Scholarships. All of these funds will be used immediately for scholarships.

Questions and Answers

Can I receive a tax deduction for my donation?

Yes, if you are a US or Canadian citizen. We always advise consulting with your tax advisor on your particular situation.

Can I designate my donation to go to a particular student?

For US or Canadian citizens:

  • If you wish to receive a tax deduction, you cannot specify a recipient. You can, however, specify that your donation support scholarships for students from a specific state or city, or representing a certain gender or ethnic group, etc.
  • If you want a specific student to receive your donation, you can either (a) give the funds directly to the student, or (b) donate the funds to MIU and stipulate the person you wish to receive the money, but you will not be able to take a tax deduction.

For donors from other countries:

  • You should be able to earmark your donation for students from your country, even for specific students.
