October Newsletter

Fall is a season of transition.  It is a time for counting our blessings and recounting our joys. And we always LOVE celebrating good news.

An Evolution of Leadership

The Board of Directors of the Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation (THF) is pleased to announce an evolution of leadership.  Beginning eighteen months ago, a strategic planning process began to transition leadership and strengthen the Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation.  As of July 1, 2020, Tsoknyi Rinpoche assumed the role of Board Chairman and Owsley Brown assumed the role of President. Julie Green is stepping down as Executive Director and will remain with THF as Treasurer and Financial Director.  Additionally, the foundation hired its first ever paid staff member, Kristen Rockford, to serve as Operations Manager.

A Ray of Light!

In a world with so much pain & suffering, we are pleased to provide a ray of light.  

Tsoknyi Rinpoche and the Nuns are doing fine and staying safe during the pandemic.  Remote learning is going well for the young nuns as the teachers successfully run online classes in all subjects via Google Meet.  The Shedra nuns are continuing their studies and 5 senior Shedra nuns are helping supervise the online classes and teach Tibetan.

Additionally, we have a very special treat ~ the Tsoknyi Gechak Ling Voices Newsletter.  ENJOY!

In light of these difficult times, the Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation is sincerely grateful for our generous donors who continue to support the nuns.  Their donations allow us to fund the construction of a new school building, the endowment fund, educational support, and to cover the annual expenses of the school and nunneries.  The nuns need our support and we need your help to continue our work.

Please consider becoming a Dharma Hero by setting up a monthly, recurring donation.  Recurring donations provide sustainable, reliable income to support the nuns and you’re joining a community of Dharma Heroes who want to make a positive impact worldwide. 

A $10 donation per month will cover the weekly medical expenses for all nuns.  A $25 donation per month will cover annual food costs for one nun.  Even more important than the size of your donation is the commitment you're making to provide regular support to the nuns each month. 

Recurring donations are convenient, customizable, and easy to set up. Start by clicking on the Donate button below, select your program of choice, select Monthly donation, the amount, and then enter your payment information.  Thank you for your support of the nuns that will, in turn, spread kindness and compassion in the world!

One Last Thing.
