David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace
About the David Lynch Foundation
The David Lynch Foundation (DLF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 2005 that addresses the epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among underserved populations through the implementation of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation technique. DLF has helped more than 1,000,000 children and adults worldwide, with a focus on underserved middle and high school students, veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and their families, and women and children survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. DLF also works with those in recovery, the homeless, prison populations, people living with HIV/AIDS, and others.
DLF has undergone remarkable growth during the past several years, growing to nearly 100 staff in five cities (New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, and Fairfield, IA) and a budget of over $15 million annually. It has earned broad public interest and support for its evidence-based work and proven impact from entertainment, media, and financial industry icons. CEO Bob Roth's 2017 New York Times bestseller, Strength in Stillness: The Power of Transcendental Meditation, has been featured in a wide variety of outlets, including Good Morning America, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg Business Week, Dr. Oz, Ellen DeGeneres, and many others.
