Global Diamond Cutter believes in paying it forward and supporting causes that make the world a better place.
We are grateful to be able to support the few charity projects below.
Asian Classics Input Project
Founded in 1988 with a grant from the David and Lucile Packard foundation, the Asian Classics Input Project (ACIP) is dedicated to locating, cataloging, digitally preserving, and freely distributing rare and precious collections of Tibetan and Sanskrit manuscripts.
These surviving texts hold the philosophical, cultural, and religious heritage of Asian traditions dating back more than 2500 years.
It's a race against time for ACIP:
- Countless books lost over the generations
- Many books that do remain are extremely fragile
- Many books unavailable due to politics or other problems
Diamond Mountain Retreat Center
Founded in the United States, Arizona by Geshe Michael Roach in 2000, Diamond Mountain Retreat Center (DMRC) aims to create the conditions for an extensive change in our global community – a cultural shift that makes retreat possible.
Big on eco-friendliness, the DMRC provides an alternatively-powered rural environment in the desert where people seeking for a timeout from their busy lifestyles can come for retreats.
Operating as a “mostly self-supporting” retreat center, DMRC relies on donations in order to make their programs available to all.
