“Life begins with love, is maintained with love and ends with love.” ~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche

Endowment Initiative

The dramatic changes in our global situation have brought to mind the poignant truth of impermanence. With his own impermanence in mind, Tsoknyi Rinpoche has been reflecting upon the need to ensure the long-term sustainability of his nunneries. To this end, Tsoknyi Rinpoche challenged the Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation (THF) with the goal of increasing the Tsoknyi Nuns Endowment Fund to $10 million by the end of 2026.

Why $10 million?  As Tsoknyi Rinpoche puts it in Nepali layman’s terms, an endowment fund is like a happy cow that can sustain the nuns with her milk. 

A $10 million endowment fund will provide $500,000 annually supporting over 250 nuns and we are almost halfway there with $4.81 million in the fund!!

We are pleased to announce a $100,000 match from the Pundarika Foundation US. For every dollar donated to THF between now and Losar, March 3, Pundarika will match dollar-for-dollar toward the Endowment Fund!

Pundarika US Match = $100,000
