|We are a publicly supported charity with most of our funding coming from donations of less than $200. Due to an all-volunteer support staff and very low organizational overhead, all funds donated to the foundations’ charitable projects go directly to those projects.
Looking Forward to the Next 25 years
I know for myself, and probably for others who have been on this journey and are of a certain age, my thoughts go to how to sustain the mission and activities of the Foundation for the next 25 years and after I am gone. This is particularly pressing given the ongoing support needed to sustain the thriving monastic communities in Nepal and India. With this in mind, I ask that you please consider making a donation to the Foundation and to specifically consider us in your estate planning. The Ripa Ladrang Foundation plans to soon announce an endowment that will make it easy to accomplish this. By supporting the Foundation through planned giving you can support the monastic communities and our teachers’ efforts well into the future. For those interested in further information, please contact our Treasurer Joshua Green, at RipaGiving@gmail.com.
A special thanks to my colleagues on the Foundation Board – Suma Chander, Radhika Nayar, Susie Miller-Reid, Jim Miller and Joshua Green for your steadfast support of the Foundation.
On behalf of the Ripa Ladrang Foundation, I would like to thank all our members and friends for your continued support of His Eminence, the Ripa Lineage and our many projects. We look forward to all that we can accomplish together in the next 25 years!
