How the Foundation Works

One Donation. Global Impact.

With a single, easy monthly donation, you are supporting dozens of organizations that are making the biggest impact in mindfulness worldwide.

Instead of one donation to just one organization, you are contributing to a much larger pool of resources, multiplying your impact.

Streamlined Monthly Donations.

Start making an impact in less than 2 minutes. Monthly donations are automatic. Get a monthly newsletter with a progress update of how your donations are changing lives, and changing the world.

Spiritually Inclusive.

The organizations in our network span many diverse spiritual traditions - including Hindu Vedanta, Vipassana & Zen Buddhism, Christian contemplation, and even scientific research. No more building one exclusive religion at the expense of all others. We believe in the perennial philosophy that every tradition contains the same core teaching: Moving beyond the ego to greater awareness and compassion.

Community of Changemakers.

We are building a community of worldchangers who want a better future for humanity. Like you, they've experienced the power of mindfulness and meditation themselves, experiencing their own awakening.
Now we pay it forward.

Spreading Wisdom for a Better Human Future

“We are drowning in knowledge, but starving for wisdom.”

A better world starts within the human heart.

There’s no question that our world is disconnected, complex and chaotic. How we treat each other, war, crime, violence, bigotry, religious conflict,  disease, our own personal quality of life, as well as how leaders mindfully navigate complex problems such as climate change and AI technology, depends on whether we’re living and leading from a place of spiritual wisdom.

The ancients knew this – From the Buddha, Jesus, yogis, mystics, shamans and more – and science is quickly finding out: Unless humanity can come to an awakening and transcend our ego through mindfulness, we cannot live or lead with true wisdom – for ourselves or for others.

The future of humanity calls for human awakening.

Awakening has been called many things: Salvation, liberation, and more. But no matter what it’s called, awakening is available to everyone. 

We believe that through mindfulness in all its forms (meditation, prayer, and more), humanity can have a future of peace, unity, compassion, and wisdom.

Luckily, there are teachers, charities, counselors, and organizations that are already doing this important work of human transformation.

The purpose of The Wisdom Foundation is to support that work.

$ 0

Streaming services like Netflix are multi-billion dollar companies that are based on a simple, cheap monthly subscription of less than $20.

Our goal is to recruit 10,000 donors to commit to at least $10 a month. For the cost of a monthly streaming subscription, you can support the spread of deep wisdom all over the planet.

That’s $100,000 we will send every month to teachers and organizations that are spreading the wisdom of mindfulness and personal growth.

Who We Support

We support organizations and teachers who are making the biggest impact for human wisdom, and a better human future. Our network spans the globe, advancing both the science and practice of mindfulness from an interspiritual perspective.
