About Us


What we do?

Karuna Institute is a Charitable Nonprofit formed in 2002 by Law Offices of Michael F. Roe, PC.  Karuna Institute is the vehicle for charitable and educational projects sponsored by the Firm as part of its mission to “do well for its clients and do charitable good for others.”

Karuna Institute sponsors events in contemplative science, and has founded Asiana University, an online academic center that connects students in the contemplative sciences with strong and cost effective Pastoral Care and Clinical Pastoral Education academic programs in Asia and around the world. All revenues from Asiana University support the charitable projects of Karuna Institute.

Karuna Institute also sponsors

The Departing Warrior Project

and the Wai Khru Foundation

Karuna Institute has also helped with small, but important projects, such as supplying funds to a former Thai Monk as he supports Shan State (Burma) refugee children in northern Thailand with food, clothing, and educational needs.

How we do it?

The Law Firm devotes a percentage of revenues to the charitable goals of Karuna Institute. In some cases, aged client receiveables are collected and applied to Karuna Institute’s nonprofit account. In other cases, direct fundraising activities generate funds for Karuna’s projects…in all cases, 100 percent of collected funds go toward the projects. Karuna Institute does not use funds raised for admin costs or travel costs.
