MIU Giving

 

You are invited...

You are invited to join us in supporting this unique university, where students are trained in the expansion of consciousness while studying traditional fields of knowledge.

There are a number of ways that you can contribute, ranging from supporting the Annual Fund, expanding the endowment, improving the campus, and with legacy gifts such as annuities, property and bequests.

Please join with us in supporting Maharishi’s great gift to the world.

As MIU nears its 50th anniversary, we can take great pride in looking back at the University’s historic achievements over the last half century.

MIU is the first and foremost University in the world to offer Consciousness-Based education. Education that has, at its very core, the experience of our infinite Self—the eternal field of Consciousness. Our education uniquely fulfills the ancient exhortation of the oracle at Delphi, “Know Thy Self.” It is education rooted in the eternal Vedic wisdom.

Through all these 50 years, MIU’s cherished benefactors have shown heroic, unwavering support. We honor you, and thank you, for contributing to this noble institution offering Education for Enlightenment—which stands as a model university for all time and for every nation.

Today, MIU is in a phase of tremendous, unprecedented growth. Especially in those core areas that uniquely feature Maharishi’s precious knowledge, such as the Maharishi Ayurveda BA and MA programs, and the Consciousness and Human Potential degrees.

And yet, during this challenging time of the coronavirus pandemic, our immediate needs are particularly acute. Hence our Annual Giving Campaign holds unique and special urgency.

This MIU Development Office supports four vital objectives:

The Annual Fund

Ensures our ability to function.

Capital Campaign

Supports the continuing upliftment of our campus.

Endowment

Ensures our ability to endure.

Planned Giving

Funds the future of the university
