Join the Tzu Chi Greater Washington DC Region in Preparing Students for the 2024-25 School Year


In the last 15 years, the Tzu Chi Greater Washington DC Region has collaborated with local schools to support children and families from low-income households across Virginia and Maryland.

Tzu Chi Greater Washington DC Region is raising money to give backpacks filled with school supplies to at least 300 students from low-income households. These items will include…


  • backpacks
  • notebooks
  • folders
  • loose leaf paper
  • pens and pencils
  • markers and colored pencils
  • …and more! 

With a donation of just $30, you can help us provide the school supplies one child needs to get a strong, confident, and stylish start to the school year. What’s more, parents and caregivers will be able to save money on these necessary items, giving their budgets much-needed relief in a difficult year.

Make a pledge and get supply-filled backpacks to kids now!
