Planned Giving

Shantideva Center’s long-term strength and financial sustainability relies on the kindness and generosity of others. An enduring way to support our center is by including Shantideva as a beneficiary in your estate plan.

Simply include Shantideva Center as a charitable beneficiary in any of the following estate planning vehicles:

  • Last will and testament
  • Irrevocable or revocable trust instrument
  • Life insurance policy
  • 401K or retirement plan
  • Bank Account

“For any sentient being, who during the period of my teachings Makes charity well (even if the material is the size of hair), For 80,000 eons will experience the great result of great enjoyment.” —Tengyur
