Help Build a More Compassionate World

The compassionate activity of our worldwide mandala is accomplished through a number of FPMT Charitable Projects and funds which seek to preserve the Dharma, support study and practice, benefit beings in need, and create the causes for peace.

Please consider offering support to one or more of our projects and funds below. Thank you!


Supporting Our Lamas ∼ Donate

Offering support to our kind lamas in any way possible is the root of the path to enlightenment. This fund includes the Lama Zopa Rinpoche Bodhichitta Fund, the Big Love Fund, and providing offerings toward long life pujas.


Supporting Ordained Sangha ∼ Donate

The Supporting Ordained Sangha Fund provides support to ordained Sangha (monks and nuns) as well as monasteries and nunneries. Funds are used to provide support for food, accommodation, education, health care, retreat needs for Sangha, and the Lama Tsongkhapa Teachers Fund.
