annualreport2015The Tibet Fund is pleased to present our 2015 Special Annual Report to commemorate the 35th year of service to the Tibetan communities across India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. The 35th year special report features a comprehensive look into The Tibet Fund’s noteworthy moments from our humble beginnings to our ongoing initiatives and projects enhancing educational opportunities, rehabilitating new refugees, promoting healthy Tibetan communities, developing economically sustainable communities in exile and preserving the Tibetan religious and cultural heritage.

The Board of Directors and the staff of The Tibet Fund would like to take this opportunity to extend our deepest gratitude to our generous supporters for making these last 35 years possible and look forward to continuing our service to the Tibetan community!

The 7th Tibet Fund Annual Gala represents an important milestone for us as we celebrate 35 years of exemplary service and contribution to Tibetan communities in India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet.  Throughout the Tibetan people’s struggle, The Tibet Fund has been critical in funding and managing vital programs in various areas including education, health, and refugee rehabilitation.

The Annual Gala is also a time for our friends and supporters to convene together, while acknowledging individuals who have made striding efforts in supporting the Tibetan Cause. This year, we are honoring Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congressman Jim McGovern and Dr. Kazuko Hillyer Tatsumura who have been longstanding friends and supporters of the Tibetan people.  In their own way, each has contributed to the work of The Tibet Fund and helped to sustain our culture and faith.  On this special occasion, we will also pay special tribute to late Melissa Mathison, a dear friend of the Tibet Fund, an outstanding American film and television screenwriter and philanthropist.
