Gratitude to The Pema Chödrön Foundation

Back in April, on behalf of SACASA, I sent an online application to The Pema Chödrön Foundation, which offers a program providing Ani Pema's books to non-profit organizations who wish to use them for the people they serve. A couple of weeks ago I received notification that our application had been approved.

Yesterday I received a box with 10 copies each of four of Ani Pema's books that I requested based on their useful for our clients and their accessibility for non-Buddhists. There were single copies also 5 audio (CDs) courses and a DVD.

We are so incredibly grateful to The Pema Chödrön Foundation for their generous gift to our organization and our clients.

If you find it in your heart to donate to the Foundation, please do so, they rely on donor support to pay for the program. 

SACASA also relies on donations to support our work, and you can DONATE here.

Book Initiative

The PCF ‘book initiative’ aims to make Pema’s books and recorded teachings available to underserved individuals, and the organizations that serve them, free of charge.

This program is for the benefit of those who have no access to Pema’s teachings, and to groups and not-for-profit organizations who serve people in need.

If your organization would like to participate in this initiative, an application can be found here: Application Form

On behalf of Pema and The Pema Chödrön Foundation, we want to thank our donors for their support, and the Oliver S. and Jennie R. Donaldson Charitable Trust for two generous grants to this initiative. It is because of their support that we’re able to offer Pema’s teachings to those in need.

If you’d like to support the Book Initiative you can do so below.
