The Sustaining Circle
2016 Year-End $ 10,000 Matching Gift Challenge: Join the Sustaining Circle and your contributions will be doubled for your first three months!
Already a member? We’ll also match any increase you make to your monthly donation for three months!
Thanks to the generosity of anonymous and wonderful Dharma Center benefactors, your new or increased Sustaining Circle donations will be matched for three months until the $10,000 is gone.
The Sustaining Circle is a dedicated group of monthly donors who provide the ongoing financial support necessary to carry out the mission of the Sacramento Dharma Center–“To create and sustain a sanctuary for meditation and Buddha’s teachings, welcoming everyone who seeks to end suffering and live in harmony.” Their regular dana forms a foundation that we can rely on for operations, mortgage, improvements and repairs.
2016 saw the fulfillment of a once unreachable goal, securing a permanent home for the three Founding Sanghas. Now as the vision of regular programs, classes, and meditation begins to be realized, we confront the reality of increased financial need. Help us create and sustain the Dharma Center mission in the new year.
The Year-End $10,000 Matching Gift Program will double your new or increased contributions for three months!
Whether you are new to the Sustaining Circle, or wish to increase your existing contribution, you can begin online at the link below, or mail checks to 3111 Wissemann Drive, Sacramento, CA 95826. Most banks will automatically send a check each month via free bill pay services. Whether you can afford $10, $30, $50, $100 per month or more, help us meet the challenges of 2017.
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.
