Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation


Planned Giving

"Many people from around the world are sharing in the Tsoknyi Nuns Fund Initiative, which will preserve the legacy and heritage of the nuns far beyond my lifetime. I deeply appreciate their help, as this work will impact many generations to come."
Tsoknyi Rinpoche III

A planned gift is a powerful way to practice generosity beyond this lifetime and sustain the preciousness of the Tsoknyi Nuns for future generations.  As you contemplate the future and your personal legacy, please consider including the Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation (THF) in your will and estate planning.

The Gift of a Lifetime

Will & Living Trust

Share our general bequest language and federal tax ID information with your attorney as you make plans to include the Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation in your will or trust.

And please let us know so we can thank you and welcome you into our Legacy Society.

IRA/Retirement Plan

Name THF as the charitable beneficiary of your IRA upon your death by listing THF as your beneficiary. 

You can also give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to THF today without having to pay income taxes on the money. More information here.

Life Insurance

When the original purpose for a life insurance policy no longer applies, it can become a powerful and simple way to support the Tsoknyi Nuns.

This gift is as simple as updating your beneficiary designation form with the policyholder. More information here
