over the past 9 years, the DLF claims that they have taught 500,000 kids to meditate for free.
In 2012, all of 8,000 adults in the USA learned TM, paying some portion of the full fee while with kids, the lion's share of the fee went straight to the TM teachers. It's not a 50-50 thing as with the adult fee, but more like an 80-20 or even 90-10 split, when kids are taught. This suggests that, unless you think that they're planning on huge revenues 20 years from now from all the kids who learned TM at school, that teh TM organization exists primarily to teach TM, not to make money for its own sake.

They are not out there doing anything substantive to improve the quality of life for people - they promote TM to promote TM, not to do anything else. (from my point of view) Absofuckinglutely.
