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 offer full or partial 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.
For member donations, please use the below methods of payment. For attending retreats, please email the Registrar as well, to mark your Pay Pal donation for “Retreat/Sesshin” —that helps with registrations.
Donations are accepted via PayPal and check.
