Personalized Giving

With legacy giving, you can provide long-lasting support for Maharishi International University while enjoying financial benefits for yourself and your family.

It's more than bequests

Legacy Giving can be designed in many ways. This is a fascinating area of financial knowledge, with all sorts of tools and varying benefits.

We suggest that you get support with these decisions, with a family lawyer, legacy giving professional, and/or you can take advantage of our Professional Advisory Committee (PAC).

In any case, it's all in the numbers and how they can best serve you and the causes to which you hope to leave a legacy gift.


Bequests, Beneficiary Designation Gifts and Charitable IRA Distributions are easy, flexible, and in some cases have tax benefits. And there are many other intriguing options (see below).
