Support

We encourage interested donors to make a personal connection to the program and contact us to begin a conversation about getting involved.

In July, 2015, Science for Monks was incorporated as a nonprofit public benefit corporation in the state of the California and registered for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS. We established this non-profit entity to get more people involved, to grow a network of support that can sustain the monastics enduring explorations with Western science.

Science for Monks receives ongoing support from the Sager Family Foundation and the John Templeton Foundation to implement the programs described throughout this site. Building upon this support, we are raising funding to expand indigenous and home-grown projects within the community of Tibetan monastics that advance the community’s capacity to be entrepreneurial in their evolving dialogue with science.
