A guiding principle for IMC has always been that the teachings of the Buddha are priceless and, in that spirit, we have been dedicated to offering our programs and services freely. We are still firmly committed to that idea and, while our needs are modest, the reality is that things cost money, more so now than in the past. Your donation will be used for:
  • Rental space for our sangha meetings
  • Scholarships for those who can’t afford to attend retreats
  • Down payments for retreat venues (which are generally paid at least a year in advance)
  • Web hosting and IT support
  • Equipment and software to run virtual and hybrid meetings
  • Liability insurance, bank fees, PO box rental, etc.
Our sangha members offer dana (generosity) in many ways. Your financial support is one of the the things that allows us to keep offering the Dharma, and we are immensely grateful.

In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.
