THE DALAI LAMA TRUST
The Dalai Lama Trust was founded in 2009 by His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama. The Trust was established to support the advancement and welfare of the Tibetan people, the culture and heritage of the ancient civilization of Tibet, and the promotion of the deep rooted values associated with its culture and people.
Among a number of charitable activities, the Dalai Lama Trust supports the preservation of Tibetan culture and the development of leadership and educational opportunities for young Tibetans. The Trust also seeks to support initiatives that encourage a sense of universal responsibility in the global community, and the advancement of dialogue between science and religion. The Trust regards the cultivation of ahimsa and nonviolence as a powerful means toward both individual growth and broader social change. The Trust also provides relief and assistance to underserved communities of all faiths and origins.
The Dalai Lama Trust is funded by charitable contributions made by the founder and by the public. The Trust is a U.S. nonprofit charitable organization registered in the State of New York. It is governed by a board of trustees, chaired by the founder.
