The M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence was founded in 1991 by the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Arun Gandhi, and his wife, Sunanda Gandhi. "The Gandhis provided seed money for the Institute through the sale of Gandhiji’s letters to his son and daughter-in-law (Arun’s parents), Manilal and Sushila. Sustaining funds come from contributions, publications, program fees, and grants. The Institute is hosted by the University of Rochester, which graciously provides an office for our work on nonviolence." [1]
