Leave a Legacy

“I believe that through educating women and giving them the tools they need to lead a fulfilling life, we all become stronger… after I am gone, this need will continue. Because of this, I have left instructions in my Will for a legacy gift to be made to the Tibetan Nuns Project. It makes me smile to know that the work of the nuns and the Tibetan Nuns Project will continue in some very small way because of this gift.”   — Vicki R., Legacy Donor and Nun Sponsor

Each of us possesses the opportunity to leave our mark on the world.

Tibetan Nuns Project Legacies of Compassion booklet front coverLeaving a gift in your will to the Tibetan Nuns Project is an easy way to ensure that your values and compassion will continue to be felt for generations. Your legacy gift will help educate, nourish, and empower Tibetan Buddhist nuns. It will help ensure that they achieve equality in education and, at the same time, help preserve the Tibetan culture and religion that are so severely under threat.
