Tsoknyi Nuns Endowment Fund

The Tsoknyi Nuns Endowment Fund

An important way to ensure the education, health, and spiritual well-being of the Tsoknyi Nuns is to create a self-sustaining endowment fund. This fund will provide the financial resources to support them into the indefinite future. To that end, Tsoknyi Rinpoche tasked us with growing the Nuns Endowment Fund to $10 million by the end of 2027. 

The $10 million Endowment Fund will provide approximately $500,000 annually, which is sufficient to cover operating expenses of the nunneries without sacrificing the future growth and income potential of the Fund.
