About Tzu Chi

Tzu Chi Foundation was established in 1966 by Venerable Dharma Master Cheng Yen. For over 44 years, the foundation has been contributing to better social and community services, medical care, education and humanism in Hualien and around the world. From the first 30 members, housewives who saved two cents from their grocery money each day to help the poor, the foundation has grown to over five million members in 48 countries.

Master Cheng Yen firmly believes that suffering in this world is caused not only by material deprivation but, more importantly, also by spiritual poverty. She feels that the lack of altruistic love for others has been the root of many problems in this world. Thus, the foundation’s guiding principle on charity is to “help the poor and educate the rich.”

Tzu Chi’s missions focus on giving material aid to the needy and inspiring love and humanity to both givers and receivers. In addition to charity, the foundation dedicates itself in the fields of medicine, education, environmental protection, international relief work and the establishment of the world’s third largest marrow donor registry. It also promotes humanistic values and community volunteerism. Through helping those in need, Tzu Chi volunteers take on the path of bodhisattva practices, the way to Buddha hood.

In 1984, Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation was established in California, as a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Since then, 85 local offices have been established with over 100,000 members in the U.S. working to make a difference in their local communities.

慈濟基金會簡介

佛教慈濟基金會,1966 年在花蓮紮根,是當時少見的本土慈善組織;44年來,在全球各地開枝散葉,從最初的濟貧慈善工作開始,擴及醫療、教育、人文志業,以及國際賑災、骨髓捐贈、社區志工、環保等面向。全球48個國家設有慈濟據點,會眾人數突破500萬名。

「佛心師志」──全球慈濟志工秉持佛陀法教、證嚴上人教誨,將「行動力的付出」當作修行,為貧病眾生拔苦予樂,教富者得福而樂。這種體現「佛在人間」的菩薩行,不僅使「大愛」成為一種普世價值,更將「佛教」推向國際,超越國界、種族、宗教、文化的「人生的宗旨、生命的教育」。

證嚴上人說:「慈濟不同於一般的慈善機構,它是一個藉事練心、修行的菩薩團體。」

自慈濟成立伊始,濟貧救難工作一日不曾停歇。遍布在社會各角落的慈濟人,就如同觀世音菩薩的千手千眼,聞聲救苦,即時解難,發掘出暗角中的苦難眾生,實際探訪、用心了解,施予急難慰助金、長期生活照顧及心靈撫慰。

證嚴上人形容慈濟人「身上含藏聞聲救苦的基因」,故能以慈悲喜捨之心,起救苦救難之行,濟貧教富,拔苦予樂,使貧者得救而安,富者得福而樂。慈濟人更以實際參與,體悟生老病死、成住壞空的真諦,以無邊的大愛慈心撫慰苦難的人生。

全球同步進展慈善志業國際化、醫療志業普遍化、教育志業完全化、人文志業深度化,所有經費完全來自民間捐款,志工是各項服務方案的主要執行者,因此善款的使用得到最佳監督,獲得海內外社會大眾的信任與支持。

1989年,美國第一個慈濟據點在洛杉磯阿罕布拉市成立。全美設有85個慈濟據點,逾10萬名會員,推動慈善、醫療、教育、人文四大志業,同時邁開國際賑災、骨髓捐贈、環保、社區志工腳步,人醫會、慈青、教師聯誼會各功能組織陸續完備。
