Part of the proceeds of all sales of Paradise Filmworks International go to support charitable works in the Himalayan region and other countries in need. Rigpe Dorje is a Tibetan word that means "ultimate wisdom" or "enlightened mind." The Foundation was named after His Holiness 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, the head of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Foundation was started by His Eminence, Jamgon Kontrul Rinpoche III.

In all nations there exists poverty and disadvantage. Poverty undermines the health, well being and stability of nations. Disadvantage limits activity and growth. These two conditions inflict untold suffering on the poor. Out of that need, Rigpe Dorje Foundation, a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization, was founded in 1985 to provide compassionate care for the impoverished and underprivileged. Today, RDF has established numerous projects throughout Nepal and India for children, the elderly, eye surgery camps for cataracts, education, medical facilities, and programs for the prevention of the trafficking of children.
