The Charles Englehard Matching Fund

Because of its rapid growth over the past few years, and with future growth planned to accommodate up to 200 students, RYI is in urgent need of expanding its facilities. Currently, our more than 100 foreign students borrow their classroom space from the monastic community. Our administrative offices and information technology offices are overcrowded and are badly in need of modernizing.

Thanks to the generosity of the Charles Englehard Foundation in the USA, a Matching Fund has been established for the New Building Project at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery. This project comprises both purpose built premises for RYI and new residential quarters for the monastery's monks.

The Foundation has agreed to match any contribution that Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery receives from its supporters - up to $108,000! For every dollar that you donate, the Foundation will also donate one dollar. That means that if you make a generous donation of $25, that donation will be matched - providing the Monastery with $50 to carry out its vital new building project. If you are able to give $500, your contribution will leverage an equal donation of $500 - for a total of $1,000. In fact, every donation you make now will be matched, dollar for dollar!

Your gift will have twice the impact for the new building project, so please do consider lending your support.

The New Building Project at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery

Construction of the New Building began in 2009 and is nearing completion, but funds are now urgently needed to complete it!

Can you help? We have an extraordinary opportunity right now to increase our much-needed funding, through the kindness of this generous matching gift offer.
