All happiness in this world comes from wanting others to be happy, and all suffering in this world comes from wanting only oneself to be happy

Endowment contribution - securing sustainability

An endowment contribution is a substantial and lasting way to support the goals and visions of The Garchen Foundation. Through an endowment contribution the assets of The Foundation will be increased. The annual net of interest income will benefit current projects. In this way you will help to plan our long-term goals and to achieve and create a lasting legacy for future generations. We would like to invite individuals and institutions to support The Foundation's work in a sustainable manner through endowment contributions, for example, individuals who share a similar concern, but do not want to create a separate foundation themselves. It is possible to make an endowment contribution in the form of a will or a testamentary trust (legacy). Board members of The Garchen Foundation will be available to assist you with any questions concerning the possibilities of supporting The Foundation and would provide detailed information. Of course, we would also offer a personal interview on the subject. Please do not hesitate to contact us:

Generosity is one of the pillars of the Buddhist tradition. The Garchen Foundation is grateful for any kind of donations that allow us to work together for our visions.
