The Annual Fund

Annual Giving is the cornerstone of all fundraising activities at the School and is needed to maintain the level of excellence fostered at Maharishi School. It refers to unrestricted gifts made to the School on a yearly basis. Unrestricted gifts help the school meet annual expenses such as faculty salaries, new programs, upgrades in technology, and financial aid.

A growing Endowment Fund is essential to securing the future and expansion of Maharishi School. An endowment fund is a "savings account" from which we draw a set percentage of the interest income to offer more scholarships to students and to support a highly qualified faculty. The principal remains untouched and grows for the future. We very much appreciate our Endowment Fund donors for their long-term vision and support of Consciousness-Based education and Maharishi School. For more information on contributing to the Endowment Fund, please contact the Development Director at (641) 472-9400, ext. 5108. Thank you.

Gifts of Securities and other legacy gifts

  • Securities: Appreciated securities are an excellent form of asset to use in making a charitable gift. In most cases an outright gift of securities that has increased in value entitles the donor to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities and avoidance of capital gains tax. To learn more visit the MUM stock donation page here.
  • Giving to Maharishi School can be planned for in one’s estate plan for a specific amount, a percentage of the donor’s estate, or even a residual portion. For more information, contact the Development Director at (641)472-9400, ext. 5108.
  • For further possibilities for donating real estate, tangible personal property, insurance, or remainder gifting, please contact the Development Director at (641)472-9400, ext. 5108.
