IBS Endowments

The Institute of Buddhist Studies also welcomes endowments. Endowments support our facilities and operations, our scholarship program, our library, our publications, and our faculty.

With an endowment you create a lasting legacy in your name or the name of someone you wish to honor. You are investing in the future of Buddhist education for generations to come. Endowments may be created with a minimum of $50,000 and are governed by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) clearly stating your wishes and intentions.

The IBS and the Buddhist Churches of America Endowment Foundation prudently invests your funds to assure that the principal is preserved and the earnings are only used for purposes you designate.

Are you interested in creating an endowment in your name or in honor of a loved one? For more information, please contact our Vice President of Development, Reverend Seigen H. Yamaoka, directly at:
