CIHS is participating in San Diego Gives 2023: A Day of Local Giving

San Diego Gives is a year-round program that promotes nonprofit sustainability and donor education. In 2023, efforts culminate in an online, region-wide Day of Giving September 7, followed by a Day of Volunteer Service on September 8.


Now in its third year, the program shines a light on local, pressing needs and the impactful responses of our nonprofit community via robust communications, an interactive website, volunteer opportunities, and an online crowdfunding campaign. All funds raised remain in San Diego to bolster our region. Last year, $1,008,674 was raised for 327 nonprofits and thousands of donors were engaged, with many making first time gifts.  


This important day of giving is in one week! On September 7th CIHS will be part of an incredible group of local nonprofits coming together for a special day of online giving. Your support will make a difference by supporting students pursue mind-body-spirit higher education. CIHS is one of the leading graduate schools that offers consciousness studies and accredited degrees that link science and spirituality. We have lots of ways to give back to our community, please join us!





It’s an exciting time to be a part of CIHS and the future of integral education. As a graduate school and research center, as well as a public learning community, we are on a mission to illuminate humanity through research-informed programs in integral health, integral noetic studies, and psychology. We strive to equip and matriculate students with a deeper understanding of the nature of reality; and with the skill set to contribute to the betterment and sustainability of a global society.

For three decades, we have learned that it takes a village/community to bring our founder, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama’s vision to life. We have also learned that generosity pays dividends. Thanks to individuals, corporations, and foundations who believe in our mission, we are able to continue to illuminate humanity through the integration of science and spirituality. 


Gifts of all sizes can make a difference. Your support today will fund student scholarships, faculty recruitment and retention efforts, new research initiatives, and public programming.

For more information or to discuss specific giving opportunities, please email or call 760-634-1771.


CIHS is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, EIN 33-0494864. All donations are tax-deductible. 


We hope you will join us as we launch our CIHS Scholarship Fund.

In 2022 CIHS launched the Scholarship Fund.  The fund’s purpose is to better serve our community and provide new opportunities for potential students in need. Your contribution will make a direct impact on our students' well-being, and connects directly to our mission of supporting and encouraging the growth of the whole person: mind, body, and spirit, and uplifting the global conscious community. On behalf of everyone at CIHS, we offer heartfelt appreciation for considering helping our students in financial need.


Scholarship funding will not only help us recruit and retain deserving students, but it makes higher education a reality for promising students who lack adequate financial resources. We hope to partner with you long into the future to ensure the next generation of students can afford a CIHS education deserving of their talents and ambitions, regardless of their economic means. 


 CIHS Trustee Yem Fong has very generously donated $10,000 toward the initiation of this scholarship fund.


The CIHS Scholarship will be a need-based scholarship. Often a scholarship of any financial size can make the difference of whether or not a deserving student can receive a CIHS degree.


If you would like to make your contribution today, please visit our scholarship donation page, and know that you are positively affecting the lives of our students, and thus, the greater community.
