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.

For gifts of stock, planned giving, or other forms of donation, please call 800-506-5253.

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.

Your gift – whatever the amount – helps increase our diversity (age, ethnicity, occupation, and financial standing), thereby enhancing the quality of everyone’s Process experience.

This fund allows our board and executive management team to direct funds where they are needed most.

Support the ongoing education of our faculty, the training of new Hoffman teachers, and development of new transformational programs – all of which help to ensure the highest level of experience for our students.
