Technically, "Kopan" now encompasses two separate institutions - the Monastery itself, on top of Kopan Hill, and the Khachoe Chakyil Ling Nunnery (known as "The Kopan Nunnery"), located nearby. The nunnery was established in 1979 by Lama Thubten Yeshe to provide a spiritual and practical education modeled upon that received by the monks. Starting in 2009 the nunnery began raising money to expand its housing and education capacity, which has grown from 4 to 400 in less than 35 years, using such sites as GoFundMe.com.
