Planned Giving

"Many people from around the world are supporting the Tsoknyi Nuns, helping to preserve the ability of these nuns to practice, far beyond my lifetime. I deeply appreciate everyone's help in this important effort." - Tsoknyi Rinpoche

The Gift of a Lifetime

A planned gift is a powerful way to practice generosity.  As you contemplate your personal legacy, please consider including Tsoknyi Rinpoche and the Tsoknyi Nuns in your will and estate planning. 

Planned giving is a way to provide a gift or bequest from your estate by including a specific provision in your will or living trust or naming Pundarika Foundation as the beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. The virtue of a bequest is that it costs nothing now yet provides future resources for Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s humanitarian activities into the future; and you retain control of your assets during your lifetime. 

Contact Us About Planned Giving

Whether you are just starting to think about your legacy plan or have questions, we are here to help. And, please let us know once you have named Pundarika Foundation as a beneficiary so we can thank you and add you to our Bequest Challenge and Legacy Society.
