The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace is a global charitable foundation. It was founded by film director and Transcendental Meditation (TM) practitioner David Lynch in 2005 to fund the teaching of TM in schools. Over the years it has expanded its focus to include other "at-risk" populations such as the homeless, U.S. military veterans, African war refugees and prison inmates.
The Foundation is reported to have sponsored between 70,000 and 150,000 students in 350 schools throughout the U.S. and South America. It has held several benefits to inspire charitable contributions. A 2009 benefit concert featured Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and a 2013 event featured Dr. Oz and George Stephanopoulos.
