The Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation raises money to support the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and Plum Village monastaries around the world.
The Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation is a division of the Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism, Inc. (formerly known as the Unified Buddhist Church). The Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism, Inc. is a US nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
The Foundation Family
Formed in the Fall of 2011, the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation is nurtured by a Working Board of Directors comprised of lay practitioners and monastics, four staff members, and dozens of volunteer practitioners who desire deeply to be of service.
The Foundation is unique in that our board, staff, and volunteers engage in their work with mindfulness and equanimity. In the spirit and applied practice of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings, we understand the ultimate purpose of the Foundation’s activities is to embody and create peace to help end suffering in the world. As Thay teaches us, “peace in oneself, peace in the world.”
