Welcome to the Tufenkian Foundation

Nepal Relief Work Continues

We are happy to report over $20,000 in donations following our appeal for earthquake relief in Nepal. To each of you who contributed, a heartfelt Thank You!

 

As reported previously, the Tufenkian Foundation is matching all donations, dollar-for-dollar. The matching program, initially set at $15,000, has since been revised upward to $25,000.

While the positive response has been heartening, we must also confess that the needs in Nepal are staggering, and ongoing. Post-earthquake tremors have caused substantial damage – both human and environmental. Thus, the need today is as great as ever.

 

Our implementing partner, Portland, OR-based Mercy Corps, is a highly respected aid organization, known for transparency, efficiency, and detailed reporting/assessments. To read Mercy Corps’s updates on the situation in Nepal, please go to www.mercycorps.org.

 

Donations to Tufenkian’s matching gift program may still be made via the following link: www.mercycorps.org/people/tufenkianartisancarpets/NepalEarthquake. All donations are tax-deductible.
