The essential ingredient of our support is the regular participation in activities at One Heart Sangha—SilverSpring Zendo.

Financially, we are supported in a variety of ways. Friends and members pledge a donation of about $20 a month, or $240 a year, and some pledge more or as much as they are able. We also accept donations for our Scholarship fund for those who wish to attend our retreats. We offer up to 50% scholarships for retreats to encourage sitting practice.

Your financial support also helps our teachers to attend training or conferences that support our Sangha. We are governed by a board (or Council). We are a nonprofit organization and donations are tax deductible. The Council works together under the governance of the Bylaws and stated mission: which is to encourage practice in zen meditation.
