Thank You Founding Sponsors

We would like to thank the 108 Founding Sponsors who so generously provided the seed funding to help 84000 get started with its task of translating the words of the Buddha. Each of these sponsors gave or pledged to give between $50,000-$250,000 to help us begin our journey. In addition to providing the funding for the initial rounds of translations, the funds are being used or have been used to: create the infrastructure for reviewing, editing, and pre-publication work; develop the tools and resources necessary for translation work; train translators and editors; and offset both the costs of the initial planning, and the current and ongoing administrative and operating costs.

With the vision and generosity of these Founding Sponsors, 84000 has been able to successfully launch and significantly progress with the immense task of translating the words of the Buddha. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all our Founding Sponsors for enabling us to safeguard this invaluable world heritage, and making it available for generations to come.

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, chairperson of 84000, has written a message addressed to all 108 Founding Sponsors. Click here to view Rinpoche’s message.
