1. Wills and other planned gifts

A donor can make a bequest to the Maharishi Purusha Capital of the Western World. Please contact our donations office for more information and how to make this type of gift.

2. Gifts through Payroll Deductions

Many employers will take a specific amount from your check each pay period and make a donation to a charity of your choice. Some employers may match some or the entire donation. Others may have tax efficient ways to make this gift. Please ask your employer about programs for charitable contributions.

3. Giving Appreciated Assets

By giving appreciated assets the donor receives a tax deduction for the current value of the gift and avoids the capital gains on the growth of the asset. Examples of appreciated assets that can be donated are: Stock, real estate, life insurance, IRA’s, business interest, partnership interest, art works and other types of personal property. Please contact our donations office regarding structuring donations of appreciated assets.

4. Special Campaigns, or Designated Gifts

If you would like to give a significant donation and specify where this donation is applied, we will be pleased to work with you. Examples of such designations might be to: Sponsor a residential suite, sponsor a country exhibition hall, sponsor the dining building or meditation hall. Another designation might be for a road, landscaping, our organic agriculture project, or in the name of someone a donor may wish to honor. Please see the How to Donate page for more information.

5. Matching Grants

As a means of inspiring other donations to the Purusha Capital, you can offer to provide matching funds that double the impact of any contribution from other donors. You may choose to apply this matching contribution during a specific time period, for a particular project or simply up to a stated dollar amount. We will make your offer known to potential donors. Please contact our donations office for more information if you would like to provide matching funds.

6. Charitable Lead Trust

You contribute assets to a trust. The trust makes fixed payments to the Maharishi Purusha Capital for a fixed number of years. When the contract is completed the remaining assets go tax-free to your heirs. Please contact our donations office for more information and how to structure this type of gift.
