Chenrezig Fund

The Chenrezig Fund was founded in 1998. It is a charitable and educational organization, devoted to assisting the Tibetans in their efforts to survive as a distinct people, and maintain their unique and ancient cultural heritage. The Fund accomplishes this by providing support for selected charitable projects, initiated by people of Tibetan origin. The Fund is staffed entirely by volunteers. Its modest operating expenses are funded by the earnings from the Chenrezig Fund bank account. Therefore, no administrative overhead is deducted from contributions towards specific projects. 100% of all contributions are sent to benefit the Tibetans served by the projects. The Funds financial records are open for public inspection.

Projects are selected by the Board of Directors and may include cultural preservation, education, social service, and health care. Support activities include appeals for donations and grants from individuals, groups, corporations, and foundations; appeals for in-kind donations; appeals for volunteer professional services; and presentations and promotional literature to increase public awareness of the Tibetan projects and their needs.
Support efforts for selected projects are administered separately by Board-approved directors. All support activities are subject to approval by the Board of Directors.

Members of the Board regularly site visit all projects supported by the Chenrezig Fund.

Support for Elders in Nepal : The Snow Lion Foundation, Kathmandu.

The Snow Lion Foundation's services extend to thirteen Tibetan refugee camps, and thirteen Tibetan schools, and provides for the education, health, and social welfare of Tibetan refugees in Nepal. One of the main Snow Lion Foundation Programs involves caring for Tibetan elders in Nepal. Tibetan culture upholds the noble tradition of respecting and caring for their elders. The Snow Lion Foundation maintains this tradition by providing the elderly Tibetans with adequate housing, modern and traditional medical care, and stipends to meet their daily living expenses.

Sponsorships for the Elderly: Currently there are many elderly Tibetans requiring Snow Lion Foundation support. Each elder needs a subsistence pension of $21 per month. The Snow Lion Foundation has limited resources, and depends upon grants from others to provide sufficient stipends to care for all needy Tibetan elders in Nepal.

The Chenrezig Fund is seeking individuals, families, or groups interested in helping to supporting these elderly Tibetans. Those interested can offer either a full ($250) or partial ($125) sponsorship. Biographical sketches and photographs of these needy Tibetan elders are available. Sponsorships are renewable annually. All sponsors receive a brief annual report on the status of the elder(s) they support.

Scholarships for Tibetan Refugees: Over the past eleven years, the Chenrezig Scholarship Fund has provided academic support for 34 needy Tibetan students wanting to pursue a higher education, including a dental student in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Contributions to the Chenrezig Scholarship Fund. Since the Scholarship Fund has not yet established an endowment fund from which to draw scholarship support for these students, the charity must depend on the continued generosity of donors to the Fund. It welcomes any and all donations to the Scholarship Fund, so that Tibetans are able to improve their lives and well being, through education.
