Veriditas has helped over 5,000 people experience the many benefits of walking the labyrinth. We have trained and continue to support over 3,000 facilitators, who work with the labyrinth in their local communities. Our facilitators can be found in 18 different countries around the world.
All of this work is done as efficiently as possible, with six part-time staff working behind the scenes to support Lauren and our Master Teachers.
In order to keep our programs affordable, we rely on the financial support of people like you who understand the value of the labyrinth in today’s world.
Our operating budget is based on three income sources: 45% comes from program registration fees, 48% from the generosity of individual donors, 7% from product sales.
Sustainers CircleMany of our donors, by making monthly donations, are members of our Sustainers Circle. Regular monthly gifts help provide a predictable cash flow to cover expenses.

Contribute to Veriditas’ future by planning for a special kind of gift. Cash contributions to Veriditas are always appreciated. Additionally, there are creative and flexible options that can benefit you and Veriditas. You can help ensure Veriditas’ future by including us in your estate plans by making a planned gift.
There are many ways of making a planned gift to Veriditas. Each option is expressive of a donor's particular interests and each has a distinct tax advantage. Moreover, a variety of assets may be appropriate for charitable gift purposes. Below are the three simplest ways to contribute to Veriditas being able to continue offering its important transformational work well into the future.
1. Make a Bequest in your Will
You may make a bequest to Veriditas by preparing a new will or adding a codicil to your present will. An outright bequest to Veriditas is fully tax-deductible for estate tax purposes.
The most useful bequest is an unrestricted bequest for the general purposes of Veriditas. This permits Veriditas to use your gift wherever it is most needed at the time.
A bequest can be in the form of a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the remainder of your estate after all other obligations are paid, or specific assets (such as securities, real estate or tangible personal property).
2. Life Insurance
One of the easiest ways to help Veriditas is by making us the beneficiary of your new or current life insurance.
3. Retirement Accounts
Retirement account assets, if left to anyone other than a spouse, may be subject to very high taxation. However, by designating Veriditas as recipient of any benefits remaining in your retirement plan, you may be able to effectively reduce the taxes on those assets.
Veriditas always recommends consulting your legal and financial professionals in making any planned gift. They will also be able to tell you about more complicated ways of Planned Giving. We would love to hear about your plans if you choose to do so. Please call Rita or Dawn at the Veriditas office – 707-283-0373.
