Overview
The Tibetan Association of Northern California (TANC) serves Tibetan people across the region, many of whom are recent immigrants to the United States. Through its flagship Sunday school program, TANC community members instruct more than 135 young people each week, in Tibetan language, music, and dance. In 2011, TANC purchased an old office building in Richmond, CA, to use as a community center and home for the Tibetan School. This capital grant will enable the organization to complete a series of renovations that will allow the community to move into the building, and consequently expand programming, reduce school operating costs, and increase earned income.
