Hosting a Fundraising Event
(AKA "It takes a village to raise an Endowment!) Several
local Drikung Kagyu centers have hosted fundraising events
to benefit the Southwest Buddhafield Endowment Fund,
including groups in New York, Albuquerque, Boulder and Los
Angeles. These events are extremely helpful, as the merit is
widely shared and many people are educated about this
project. We would be most happy to share tips and ideas on
how to host a fundraising event at your center.
To help with your fundraiser, we will provide a free DVD of
Garchen Rinpoche teaching on the Endowment Fund. It was
filmed at the Garchen Institute and is quite beautiful.
Please contact us with your fundraising idea and contact
information to receive the DVD.
Gifts of Expertise
If you would like to help with the Endowment, please contact
us with a brief description of what you would like to do,
your credentials and area of expertise, and your contact
information. We will contact you.

Rinpoche's thumbprint with gold paint on each. While placing
his thumb mark on each print H.E. and several others blessed
the prints with the White Tara mantra.
