Rinchen Foundation

The Rinchen Jungdan Dongrum Gyal Foundation was established by Venerable Lama Assi to assist with the provision of facilities and other support to the Kagyu Choeyang Ling centres and their affiliated activities.


If you wish to make a donation or bequest that will benefit KCL long term then the Foundation is the best avenue. Regular contributions towards the ongoing support of your local centre can be made directly to KCL Nelson or KCL Christchurch.

Donations can be direct credited to the Foundation's bank account below, or alternatively by cheque to our mailing address. Credit card donations can be made via Givalittle. Please let us know if you need a receipt for tax purposes as all donations are tax deductable. We are very appreciative of any contributions, large or small.

The account details are:

Bank: Kiwibank Limited
Branch Address: 155 The Terrace, Wellington
Account Number: 38-9015-0368079-00
