The Budding Lotus Endowment
Recognizing the need to be both proactive and sustainable, we are establishing an endowment fund in the early stages of our operations. Understanding that financial stability is essential for the long-term impact of our mission, we are pleased to introduce the Budding Lotus Endowment. This fund serves as a critical component in advancing our work for children's welfare and their future prospects.

2022 | Executive Summary
The economic challenges of 2022 have had a constraining effect on donor contributions, compelling us to optimize the allocation of resources across our programs. Nevertheless, we have achieved key milestones including the enrollment of 10 children in vocational schools, expansion of strategic partnerships within Vietnam, and the recruitment of a specialized Science and Math teacher.
The Budding Lotus Endowment continues to grow in line with major indexes and dividend growth continues to show strong resiliency.
Through collaboration, we have strengthened our partnership with other NGOs to considerably expand joint programs, some of which doubled.
Our annual fundraising forecast was $20,000. We are grateful to have been able to surpass that amount for a total of $28,000, a 40% surprise.
