We are delighted to announce that Pema Chödrön and Scott Wellenbach have joined forces in offering $100,000 in the form of a challenge grant toward the construction of a New Primary School at Tsoknyi Gechak Ling.
Pema and Scott (a generous donor from Halifax) hope that this matching grant will inspire others around the world to join with them to help raise the funds needed to build the new school.
The challenge must be matched, dollar for dollar, for the gift to occur
The current primary school was hastily built in 2013 with small classrooms and living spaces. The high quality of education and the excellent reputation of the school attracts more girls every year. Larger classrooms and living spaces are badly needed - the time for a bigger and better school is now.
Tsoknyi Rinpoche is thrilled with this donation challenge. The project budget is around $2,000,000 and over 1/4 of that has been raised so far.
Will you join with Pema and Scott and help us meet the generous $100,000 challenge grant?
Your gift goes twice as far!
