THE PEMA CHODRON FOUNDATION

The foundation was initially inspired to support Pema’s home monastery, Gampo Abbey, well into the future. As the years have gone by, The Pema Chödrön Foundation evolved to support a wide range of organizations dear to Pema’s heart.

THE BOOK INITIATIVE

The Pema Chödrön Foundation Book Initiative aims to make Pema’s books and recorded teachings available to underserved individuals and the organizations that serve them.

With your help, we have donated thousands of Pema’s books to prisons, shelters, and non-profit organizations for social good around the world.
