So Hum Foundation
Partners in Service
So Hum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation funding domestic and international charitable work.
“So Hum” is an ancient Sanskrit mantra which translates to “that am I,” a statement that recognizes the divinity and oneness of all beings. The So Hum Foundation recognizes this oneness and seeks to assist the less fortunate of our world by partnering with existing charitable organizations to provide educational, medical, therapeutic, environmental, and other services to communities.
Our Mission and Philosophy
“When you serve a less fortunate person in any way – material or spiritual – you are not doing him a favor. In fact, he who receives your help does you a favor by accepting what you give and thereby helps you to evolve and move closer to the Divine Blissful Being, who in reality, is within you and in the hearts of all beings.”
– The Satsang Foundation
Grants to organizations operating within the USA support a wide range of educational, environmental, animal welfare, health and cultural work. The majority of So Hum Foundation’s domestic charities are relatively small organizations based in Oregon and California.
So Hum Foundation typically “partners” with charitable organizations to fund a portion of their annual operating expense, and is especially interested in self-reliant and self-sustaining programs, ecologically sound practices, and high value for money donated.
