The Theosophical Society in America

The Annual Fund


The Mission

The Theosophical Society in America encourages open-minded inquiry into world religions, philoso­phy, science, and the arts in order to understand the wisdom of the ages, respect the unity of all life, and help people explore spiritual self-transformation. Devotion to truth, love of all living beings, and com­mitment to a life of active altruism are the marks of the true Theosophist. We must be ever vigilant to new ways to present this mission and its ideals and to maintain the Society's place in the world.

The Annual Fund

The Annual Fund has helped provide the margin of excellence in funding programs during the past twenty-one years. Members and friends of the So­ciety have donated generously to provide support to new as well as ongoing programs and services for members and the public out of love for the truths we have each discovered on our own personal quests. All the dollars we collect are returned to members in programs, publications, and services.

Excellent results have come from your efforts:

  • Dynamic new presence on the Internet
  • E-learning courses
  • The Quest magazine
  • CDs, DVDs & The Eternal Quest TV
  • Toll-free information
  • The Henry S. Olcott Memorial Library
  • National education programs
  • Inspirational new Quest Books
  • Conferences and Olcott Experience Events


The Opportunity

The Annual Fund allows the Society to try new concepts and to experiment. It allows us the freedom to grow. It allows our dreams to take form. It creates opportunities for new quests.

The focus of the Annual Fund this year will be the continued improvement of our edu­cational and outreach efforts, especially im­proving member's experience on our web site. Your gift will support introductory and advanced studies of timeless Wisdom giving Theosophical perspectives on current topics.

The Challenge

In support of our efforts, the Kern Foundation is once again providing a matching chal­lenge grant. In the year to come, your do­nations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $60,000. Together we can see our theo­sophical vision grow for generations’ to come.
