The Chenrezig Fund


Mission Statement

The Chenrezig Fund is a charitable and educational organization devoted to assisting the Tibetan people in their efforts to survive as a distinct people and maintain their unique and ancient cultural heritage. The Chenrezig Fund accomplishes this end by providing support for selected charitable projects initiated by people of Tibetan origin.
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. March 1998
