Bequests

Our dancing friends sometimes ask us how to leave all or a portion of their estate to Oneness Project. If you love the Dances of Universal Peace and want your estate to further the work of the Dances in the world, Oneness Project is a great choice for your bequest. Since Year 2000 we have awarded more than $900,000 in grants worldwide to support the Dances and DUP leader training. Through careful management and clear policies our endowment fund continues to grow at the rate of inflation or better. At the close of 2006 our endowment fund amounted to more than $2.2 million. We also present many beautiful and dynamic DUP retreats in the western United States.

You can be sure your bequest to Oneness Project will carry on in perpetuity to help ensure that the Dances of Universal Peace continue to inspire and unite the human family for many generations to come. Click here to view our latest financial statement of assets and liabilities.
