Clear View Project has been up and running since 2008, providing education and basic support to the most needy in Burma, India, and elsewhere. We have raised more than $100,000 in donations, and maintain close connections to those we are supporting. Today I am excited to tell you that Clear View has received our own tax-exempt 501(C)(3) status from the IRS. So it is a good day to ask for your donations.
We’ve had an eventful Spring and Summer, with visits to the White House, an opportunity to meet Pope Francis in Rome as part of a intimate Buddhist-Catholic dialogue on the subject of “Suffering, Liberation, and Fraternity,” and joining with Buddhists, Catholics, and people of all faiths in an interfith climate march in Rome.
With the support of generous friends in our wide network, Clear View Project has been able to gather almost $23,000 for education and Buddhist resources to Ambedkarite Buddhists in central and south India. These are activities make a critical difference to young people determined to lift themselves from lives of caste and class-based discrimination.
I want to keep this letter short, but we are deeply grateful to our fiscal sponsors for the last seven years—Inochi and Buddhist Peace Fellowship. They have enabled us to function smoothly and continue to do their own cutting-edge social change work.
Please give generously what you can to Clear View, and feel free to ask me about our projects in India and Burma. Checks can be written to Clear View Project—1933 Russell Street, Berkeley, CA 94703 or to our Paypal account which reach at: Clear View Fundraising.
Clear View Project is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. EIN 45-2251087.
Your donation to Clear View Project is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
