Monthly Pledge


 

An Appeal for Generosity

Aryaloka’s mission is to create the best possible conditions for people to explore, practice and share the Buddhist spiritual path for the benefit of all beings.

Why do Sangha members pledge to Aryaloka?


“I give to Aryaloka because it matters.” David Watt

“I give to Aryaloka, because I am so grateful for all I have received. The donation is a small way to give back to a place that has been a refuge and a place of joy for me.” Deb Howard

“Receiving the Buddha’s teachings and sharing my spiritual life with such wonderful people are gifts for which I could never express enough gratitude.” Vidhuma

Each of us has our own reason to give, and each gift builds our practice and our community.

Our pledge drive is a vital source of funds, providing the bedrock of certainty to our monthly income. These gives allow us to plan and dedicate our resources towards teaching and spreading the Dharma.

If you’re already pledging, sadhu! We gratefully appreciate your dana.

If you’ve not yet pledged, will you join us?

You can ask your bank to send us a payment each month, pay by check each month, or authorize Aryaloka to charge your card each month.  You can even make one large payment to cover the whole year’s pledge if that’s what you’d prefer.
