EMI Scholarship Fund

We strive to make our Mindfulness Teacher Training programs as accessible as possible. To support us in this mission, please consider making a donation to our Scholarship Fund. Help bring the valuable skills of our trainings to qualified applicants who otherwise can’t afford it. We prioritize scholarships to applicants who work within marginalized and/or underserved communities as well as applicants from communities currently under-represented in teaching positions, such as People of Color and LGBT individuals. 

***Write “Scholarship” in the dedication line of your donation to contribute to the EMI Scholarship Fund.

Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock, real estate or other appreciated assets can be very tax savvy. You can donate a gift of stock without having to convert it to cash first thus avoiding capital gains tax on its increase in value since purchase. Your charitable deduction will be equal to the full market value of the stock.

Our brokerage account is with Pershing, DTC# 0443. Contact: 641-209-8436

Please contact us for our account # at Pershing if you plan to make a stock gift to Prison Mindfulness Institute so that we can insure your gift is properly credited and acknowledged for tax purposes.

Gift and Legacy Planning

You can make a lasting contribution to the power of transformative justice by naming PDN as a beneficiary in your will, or a recipient of a portion of your estate, or by establishing a charitable trust.

PDN recommends the following language for use in wills, with four examples of bequest types.
“I hereby give, devise and bequeath to Prison Dharma Network, a non-profit corporation of the State of Massachusetts:

Percentage __________% of my estate.”
Specific: the sum of $ __________.”
the shares of stock in __________ Company/Corporation.
“my real property commonly known as __________.”
Residual: all of the residue of my estate, including real and personal.”
Contingent (preceding the above paragraph): “In the event of the death of any of my beneficiaries (followed with percentage, specific, or residual language above)”

Charitable Trusts
A variety of charitable trusts or “life income agreements” offer significant tax advantages, a regular income for you, and long-term support for PDN.

For more information about bequests, charitable trusts, or other planned gifts, please contact us.
