General Donations to the Annual Fund

Sponsorship only covers part of the cost of providing the many programs developed by Thrangu Rinpoche. We greatly depend on donations that are not directed to any particular student, monk, or nun but for the fund in general. These donations will be appropriated according to the need. Sometimes a sponsor forgets or can no longer pay so we need to be able to cover the costs. (We cannot just drop a student out of the school once they have begun!) General funds may also provide new uniforms, socks and shoes, school supplies, a bed or towels. If sent for the nuns or monks, it may provide more texts or socks and sweaters. Basically, we need to be able to provide whatever is necessary as the need arises.
