2016 Management Team & Operational Budget

Jnanasukha Foundation is pleased to announce the Management Team for 2016. These appointments signal our expanded activities, the need for a robust Advisory Council, and the generosity of donors. Feeling the gratitude and excitement!

Please join me in thanking two outgoing Directors—Lianne Hunt and Ryan Hunt. Their years of dedication and service contributed greatly and helped bring the Foundation to where it is today. Thank you and good luck!

Also, let's extend a warm welcome to new members of the Advisory Council—Chonyi Drolma, Shayna Kristen, Libby Luning, Tsogyal Lhamo and Woeser Phel—and to our new Staffers—Ani Sangye Chozom and Genevieve Legacy. I am indebted to you for embracing Jnanasukha's mission and for so generously offering your energy and expertise. With your help, I feel, not only can we do this, but we can do it well!

And, last but not least, to those who committed to yet another year—Rikzin Smith, Ellis Widner, Chuck Goldman, and Mukara Meredith—words are not enough so I will rely on the buddhas to bless you day and night!

It's wrap! Thank you Everyone. Have a Pure Day!

2016 Operational Budget

On March 21, 2016, the Board of Directors adopted our Operational Budget for 2016 based on available revenues of $81,000 generated through Jnanasukha Foundation and The Pearl Mala for Tsogyal Latso.

Our hard operational costs are only 8% of expenditures, leaving 92% for activities and projects as shown in this graphic. Thank you Dear Donors!
