2017 has been an amazing year, and KF is maturing into something bigger than we had ever dared to imagine. It’s safe to say that 2017 has been one of the most extraordinary in KF history. The outstanding support of our sponsors and volunteers enabled the foundation to launch a project that has been central to Rinpoche’s vision for many years: a new model of education for children. (That model will be described in a future Focus.) We are also increasing our investment in endowing chairs at major institutions of higher learning – another effort that is close to Rinpoche’s heart and long-term vision to ensure the longevity of authentic Buddhist studies programs. You can see our organizational new video, read a letter from Rinpoche, and read an update from the most recent KF board meeting in the December Focus.
