About us


The David Lynch Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was established in 2005 to raise funds and provide grants for the implementation of scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities, including Transcendental Meditation, for such at-risk populations as:

  • Underserved inner-city students
  • Veterans with PTSD and their families
  • Women and girls who suffer from violence and abuse

The David Lynch Foundation also funds independent university and medical school research to assess the effects of TM on academic performance, ADHD and other learning disorders, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, cardiovascular disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, and diabetes.

The effectiveness of the Foundation's programs has been investigated at leading medical schools, including Harvard, Yale, UCLA and Stanford. In fact, over 340 peer-reviewed studies, including research funded by more than $26 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health, document the wide-ranging benefits of Transcendental Meditation for relieving stress, improving overall health, and boosting creativity and performance.
