Give Grow Transform


In addition to its grantmaking, the Foundation oversees and sponsors several ongoing programs designed to raise awareness of how service gives us an opportunity to create community.

  • Building Relationships. The Foundation wants to give ample opportunity to get to know partner or grantee organizations, and to facilitate connections among them. We believe that our actions as a grantmaker have far greater impact because of these relationships we build.
  • Investing In The Community. The Foundation is dedicated to creating bridges between Shinnyo-en temples and their immediate communities.
  • Reaching Youth and Young Adults/Nurturing Future Leaders. A service-oriented life provides all people with the possibility of joy and peace. We focus our work on nurturing service especially in young people and supporting their own unique spiritual, cultural and emotional development.
