Your Donations Change Lives

The Hoffman Institute Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We depend on generous tax-deductible gifts as well as tuition revenues to ensure Hoffman’s financial viability. Your donations fund scholarships, upgrades to our new Hoffman Retreat Center in Petaluma, California, faculty training, and research and development.

Because of your support, more people can make courageous choices that change their lives. Please give generously.

Scholarship Fund

Did you know that 22% of Process participants receive support from the Hoffman Scholarship Fund? Someone is ready to take the Process today, but can’t afford it. That’s where the Hoffman Scholarship fund can make a difference.
