Crowdfunding Campaign

Raising $1 Million USD for the Stupa

KC16 is excited to announce the launch of our crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe! This phase includes building the stupa temple, designing a house for His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, and finishing the engineering and landscaping of the whole compound.

Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 of an estimated $10,000,000 — the cost of building one square foot of the stupa temple amounts to $358. We are also inviting people to contribute their time to the campaign by tracking their acts of kindness and environmental activities.
