The Gyuto Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Tibet's living cultural and spiritual heritage. The Foundation supports activities dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Tibetan culture through teaching, hosting local University students, exhibitions, interfaith dialogues and cultural programs.

The Foundation's guiding principles are to bring His Holiness the Dalai Lama's vision to a reality in the San Francisco Bay Area by providing an environment where the human values of compassion, altruism, nonviolence, and loving-kindness, the roots of all great traditions and which His Holiness the Dalai Lama tirelessly speaks on, can be discussed, and experienced.

The Foundation also supports charity programs for the Himalayan children's education and healthcare funds, Tibetan seniors living in the Bay Area and new immigrants. 

Your contribution for the monastery is greatly appreciated. Your generosity will allow for the development of this unique facility for the Gyuto Monastery and its local community of students and supporters.
