  • Shala is the Sanskrit word for a peaceful gathering place where members of a community or group find support and protection. It is home for some and sanctuary for others.

    The mission of The Shala Foundation is to serve first responder families, conservation programs, or animal rescues in need. We are a 501c3 non-profit charity that also seeks to eliminate prejudice and discrimination of disadvantaged women, children, and animals.

    We provide free educational programs, training, mentoring, donations, pro bono consulting services, and financial support to our beneficiaries each year.

    These beneficiaries are typically underserved or underrepresented groups within the local communities of Cook County, IL or Ferry County, WA.

    From time to time, we may also support other 501c3 charity organizations who directly provide relief to first responder families, conservation programs, or animal rescues.
