Suggested Donation for Weekly Activities

The Center is supported by the donations of everyone’s generosity. There is a donation bowl near the door for cash and checks, please contribute whatever you can to keep our center in action.

Note: The lack of means to make a financial contribution is not a reason to stay away.

All are welcome!


Donation for Teaching Weekends

Teaching weekends are led by instructors and Lamas who typically travel from Europe or Asia, including our resident teacher, Lama Yeshe. The Center pays their travel costs and is responsible for local travel, meals and lodging.

These events are announced in advanced and the suggested donation is based on helping the center support and care for the teachers in exchange for all that they give.


Donation to the Teachers

It is traditional to offer money (dana) to the teachers in appreciation for their efforts. They do not receive a salary or stipend and are dependent on their students for income. There is a separate bowl for teacher donations.


Tax Status of Donations

All donations to the Center are tax deductible in the USA. A statement can be sent to each donor upon request for tax purposes.
