Legacy Giving

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

Message from President Hagelin

For over forty years, Maharishi University of Management has been sustained and blessed by the extraordinary generosity of supporters like you—those who have truly appreciated Maharishi's vision of Consciousness-BasedSM education and have committed themselves to nurturing it across the years. As a direct result, our flagship institution has become a powerful lighthouse of knowledge and coherence for the whole world. The continued growth, strength, and expansion of MUM's Consciousness-Based educational programs are key to ensuring the bright future that Maharishi envisioned for us all.

Many of us are now in a position to make a more lasting financial contribution to the welfare of our University, ensuring its growth for many generations to come. I am therefore honored to invite you to join an exclusive group of visionary benefactors—the Maharishi University of Management Legacy Society.


Like most other universities and colleges, MUM will depend on legacy gifts—bequests from friends and alumni—over the next decades to build our endowment and assure our continuing success. Legacy gifts are a major source of educational funding and an important step toward our long-term financial security—thus ensuring our ability to offer Consciousness-Based education generation after generation. These gifts can be made through a bequest in your will, a charitable trust, or as gifts of life insurance, annuities, or retirement plans. By making your planned gift, you will not only help the University, but you can also bring many benefits to your family, your loved ones, and heirs.


I invite you to explore this site, where you will find descriptions of legacy gift options and can select those that match your needs and interests. The website features explanatory videos, a will planning tool, a donor newsletter, and information about our newly formed Professional Advisory Committee. Please also note information on how you can join the MUM Legacy Society.


If you think you might like to make a legacy gift to MUM please fill out and send us the simple Letter of Intent that is linked here so that we can be aware of your plans and add you as a member of the Maharishi University of Management Legacy Society.

We would be happy to assist you in planning your legacy gift. If you would like to speak directly with us—or if you have any questions regarding your legacy gift—please call the MUM Development Office at 641-472-1180 or email us at plannedgiving@mum.edu.

We thank you in advance for your generosity and vision.

Wishing you all success and happiness,

John Hagelin

President, Maharishi University of Management
