Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education

Mission: Our mission is to advance a global humanistic culture through education, and we do so through schools and programs that balance developing the mind and opening the heart. Our preschools and elementary schools offer a holistic curriculum that supports spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and creative development, while cultivating integrity and social responsibility. Our camps (through our Humanistic Education Department) and character education program nurture positive character traits and self-esteem, as they awaken the conscience, instill environmental awareness, and provide opportunities to develop interpersonal skills.

Programs: The education foundation operates preschools, kindergartens, elementary schools, character education and camps.

The Tzu Chi Education Foundation is an impactful nonprofit organization that prioritizes ideas that are all too often taken for granted in today’s society (I.e., environmental awareness, integrity, empathy, etc). From personal experience, the Education Foundation has provided me with the opportunity to guide children to a successful future not only academically, but as future citizens of tomorrow.

My time as a youth volunteer throughout middle school has taught me so many valuable life, communication, and service skills. All of my experiences with Tzu Chi have been so eye opening and educational! Although I’m no longer a youth volunteer, I enjoy spending my spare time helping out at the Life Science Garden in walnut!

I like the organic loofah, banana and winter melon grown in the garden. They are very fresh and delicious.

The organization has an incredible passion for meeting the humanitarian needs not only locally, but regionally, nationally and even internationally. I have worked with senior management and know them as individuals who are highly qualified and characterized by exceptional integrity and informed professionalism.

The organization is prudent in its planning and strategically takes steps to realize its institutional goals.

I started working in Tzu chi Education foundation in June, 2021.
Working here is a great experience and pleasure, all my coworkers are nice and professionals. Tzu Chi Foundation is built on compassion, giving and love. People who work/ volunteer in Tzu Chi do not just say, they are all role models to learn from.
After I understood Tzu Chi, I was happy to enroll my daughter to Tzu Chi preschool.
She loves her teachers, classmates and she is learning Chinese, besides Chinese and the academics my child is learning and building good character traits. (so far she has mentioned about responsibility, table manners, caring and kindness, and saving money to help others)
we couldn't be happier as parents. Thank you Tzu Chi!

We love this Foundation because they provide a lot of programs, such as including summer camps, preschools, elementary schools. The most special is the Foundation provides character education to students and let them learn how to respect lives, love to eat vegetables and more. My child loves the shcool and the Foundation, therefore, we even visit their science garden during the weekend if we have time. Great Foundation and schools! Come to visit their becautiful campus and enjoy the time with your family.

Even though I’m not a big donor, I’m surprised that I can really see (actually feel) the dollars I donated to be used in the farm, in the school programs….. with the happy faces of the children and families at Tzu Chi even during the pandemic.

There is a group of people, they come to the Walnut Life Science Garden every Wednesday and Saturday, using their private time, paving the way with love, and be a farmer of the soul with diligence; they use environmental friendly farming methods, recycle dead branches, leaves, and kitchen waste as compost, and farm natural community by inspiring healthy, whole, abundant and conscious living; they advocate truth and simplicity, cherish good fortune and environmental protection, and fill their heart with love. They are the lovely and respectable Tzu Chi Walnut Life Science Garden volunteers. They build an ecological paradise for surrounding community families with love.

This is a great organization to work with. You can not only engage in meaningful interactions with KIDS through different character education activities, but it's also FUN!! I'm surprised about the variety of programs and events they have weekly!

The indoor and out door activities are all open to the community....I meant kids and families! You can sure find a good spot for yourself when you plan to spend a few hours or days a week volunteering.
