What We Do
Founded by husband and wife Phillips "Skip" Kindy Jr. and Tsering C. Kindy in 1996, the organization was granted 501(c)(3) status in 2000. The founding board members have been involved for over 2 decades in raising funds for Tibetan social service and education projects. The Chenrezig Fund is staffed entirely by volunteers. Members of the Board regularly site visit all projects supported by the Chenrezig Fund.
Its operating expenses are funded by the earnings on the Chenrezig Fund bank account. Therefore, no administrative overhead is deducted from contributions towards specific projects. 100% of all contributions towards these projects are sent to directly benefit the Tibetans served by those projects.
As a 501(c(3) charitable corporation, all donations made to the Chenrezig Fund are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
