In order to facilitate the wishes of alumni, friends and associates to support to the Institute and its students, RYI has created a dedicated alumni fund.
This fund is intended to provide scholarships for both lay and monastic students and to support development of the Institute as a whole.
All donations pass through the Shedrub Development Fund - a 501c3 organization registered in the USA - and are tax deductible for US citizens.
Alumni are also encouraged to consider supporting Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery's social work program "Shenpen" (www.shenpennepal.org). Shenpen offers opportunities for students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to tackle real world problems in one of the world's least developed countries. Shenpen provides financial support to projects in the fields of education; street children; health; skills training; care for the elderly and animal welfare.
