Support Our Work

The work of the David Lynch Foundation is made possible by your generosity. Please consider making a gift to help us reduce trauma and toxic stress in at-risk populations.

Make a Donation

Our ability to provide the TM practice to those in need depends on the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a gift to our organization or to one of our specific programs today.

Our work could not happen without the dedication and support of our donors. Today, thousands of inner-city students, veterans living with post-traumatic stress, and women and children dealing with violent abuse or sexual assault seek the benefits that TM has been proven to provide. Make a gift today and change live.

Donations can be made online here.

Gift of Closely Held Stock

A gift of closely held stock can provide important financial benefits

Donors who are interested in making a gift of closely held stock should consult with their attorneys or tax advisors as there can be restrictions on making this type of gift.

Closely held corporations are those whose stock is held by family members or business associates. This stock is private and not publicly traded. Donors who are interested in gifting DLF with closely held stock must not enter into a prior written agreement with either the closely held corporation or a potential interested third party. These transfers should be arms-length and independent transactions.

Donors who hold this type of stock may be able to use it to support the work and future of the David Lynch Foundation.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many employers match charitable donations from their employees, thereby doubling (or even tripling) your gift to the David Lynch Foundation and providing additional opportunities for impact.

To have your gift matched, please:

• Check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer will match employee charitable donations.
• Complete the matching gift form they provide and return to DLF.
