UPDATE (January 27)

Although the Welcoming a New Era Appeal technically ended December 31, a generous anonymous donor recently made a contribution to bring the total to an even U.S.$200,000. TPRF Development Director Marci Klein was pleasantly surprised to receive an email from the donor who wanted to show their strong support: “I would like to make it reach $200,000. I can’t stand the shortfall!”

“It was the perfect conclusion to an unbelievable outpouring of support during the appeal,” says Marci. “Thank you so much to everyone who contributed!”

Original Story (January 16)

Donors from around the globe recently showed overwhelming support for The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), contributing U.S.$192,794 during the year-end Welcoming a New Era Appeal. The enthusiastic response far exceeded the goal of raising U.S.$150,000, putting the charity in a stronger position to fulfill its mission of helping people live with dignity, peace, and prosperity.

The total encompasses 1,107 donations, including U.S.$47,000 in matching funds from 7 generous anonymous donors.

“Not only does this mean that we will be starting the new year in a position to move forward with numerous projects and initiatives, but it means that the work of the Foundation represents the energy, dedication, and vision of thousands of supporters from around the world!” says TPRF President Daya Rawat.

The fundraising appeal included social media outreach and four emails to supporters from Daya, each with an accompanying video that highlighted some of the many ways that TPRF works to achieve its goal of helping build a world at peace, one person at a time.

All four of the videos are available for viewing below.

“Thank you to each and every one of you who participated in this appeal. Together, with a vision of peace being essential for each individual, we form a powerful and meaningful force for peace in this troubled world,” says Daya.
