The Sustaining Circle
A message from Sangha member Sarah O’Gara
Please join me in becoming a monthly Sustaining Circle donor to the Sacramento Dharma Center.
I am thrilled to sit amongst you as I attend my Sangha’s gatherings at the Center. And I marvel at the community’s ability to come together and make this Center possible.
And it takes all of us.
One of the most important roles we can play is to ensure financial stability for the Center. I have signed up to become a monthly sustaining donor, along with 80 others of us from all of the three Sustaining Sanghas. Together, we give a total of $3,235 a month, with gifts ranging from $10 a month to $200 a month.
Won’t you join us? We have set a goal to find 20 new monthly sustaining donors who can give a combined total of $800 monthly.
Might that be you? I certainly hope so!
You can make your monthly pledge on the Center’s secure website here at Contribute.
Together we can ensure that all three of our Sanghas have a beautiful Center to call our home.
Hope to see you there soon!
In deep gratitude,
Donations to our Capital Fund are always welcome
Sacramento Dharma Center invites you to join us in walking the path of compassion and wisdom. We know that mindfulness classes and meditation groups, Buddhist teachings, family programs, quiet retreats, and a friendly community built on kindness, can transform our lives. Let’s do everything we can today, to create this legacy for generations to come.
Your gift will contribute to the stability of the Dharma Center and help us plan for the future. Such stability gives us the freedom to focus on practice. In 2017 we will be going through an envisioning process and considering green improvements to the building and landscaping. It won’t be long before we will likely need a new roof and will be considering going solar. Having both operating and capital reserves will make these things possible.
