Please Help Support TCIA

Targeted Support

You may donate to the general operating fund of the Institute; or you may, if you wish, donate directly to a specific project. To target your donation, please write the purpose of your donation in the memo field of your check, or if using Paypal to donate online, simply add the purpose to the “Special instructions or purpose” field of the order form.

Our current special projects include the following:

  • Land of Infinite Bliss Retreat Center
  • Tutors for Tibetans Project
  • Minyak Khangsten House of Drepung Loseling Monastery

Please note however, that our greatest need is for general funds so that the organization can continue operating.

The primary objective of the Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas is education. Geshe Dorjee and our other visiting and resident monks have been making substantial contributions to the Northwest Arkansas community as they lead meditation and discussion groups, visit local churches, and provide demonstrations of their rich and ancient culture. With the establishment of TCIA, their contribution will increase even more significantly. This work will only be made possible by the generous financial support of those sympathetic to the purposes of the Institute.

To express your generosity and support of the work of the Institute, make your check or money order payable to the Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas, and mail to:

Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas, Inc.
PO Box 269
Fayetteville, AR 72702-0269 US

Another option is to sign up at and specify Tibetan Cultural Institute of Arkansas as your beneficiary.  Your everyday purchases apply a percentage donation directly to TCIA.
