What We Do
The Chenrezig Fund, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization devoted to assisting Tibetans in their efforts to survive as a distinct people and maintain their unique and ancient cultural heritage. We do this by finding sponsors for impoverished Tibetan refugee children and elders who are living on the Indian subcontinent. We also raise funds for the Chenrezig Scholarship Fund that supports several Tibetan refugees pursuing higher studies.
- Sponsoring the education of Tibetan refugee children living on the Indian subcontinent
- Sponsoring the living expenses of needy Tibetan elders living on the Indian subcontinent
- Providing scholarships for Tibetans to attend colleges and technical schools in Madison, WI
The Chenrezig Fund is a charitable and educational organization devoted to assisting the Tibetan people in their efforts to survive as a distinct people and maintain their unique and ancient cultural heritage. The Chenrezig Fund accomplishes this end by providing support for selected charitable projects initiated by people of Tibetan origin.
Support efforts for selected projects are administered separately by Board-approved directors. All support activities are subject to approval by the Board of Directors.
