A Message from Robert & Nena Thurman | Tibet House US Menla
Dear Friends and Supporters of Tibet House US/Menla,
Summer Greetings! We hope this announcement finds you, your family and friends safe and well in these surreal times. Along with so many other non-profits, Tibet House US/Menla finds itself in a financial crisis.
Since closing in March, we have been doing our utmost to offer online programs, and we are re-opening Menla in July for individual “Create-Your-Own Getaway“ retreats.
We have reduced our core staff and are depending on increased volunteer efforts. We are determined to emerge from this global crisis into a “new normal,” stronger and more resilient than ever, together with you, our community of supporters.
We are deeply moved by a most generous pledge from an anonymous supporter who has offered a matching-challenge grant of up to $250,000 to help see Tibet House US/Menla through, so we can continue our mission on behalf of the Tibetan people and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. His Holiness is aware of our situation, and we share with you his letter of support.
Join us in this important effort, which begins on the Dalai Lama’s birthday, July 6, and will run for three months. We are facing our greatest challenge since our founding 33 years ago. If ever there were a time to support us — this is it.
We will survive this crisis with your kind help! Remember, all tax-deductible donations large or small will be matched dollar for dollar up to $250,000.

We are grateful for your generosity and support in keeping our beloved institution alive and well. We wish you and your family continued health and happiness!
Sincerely, Nena and Robert Thurman on behalf of the Tibet House Board and Staff
