An Appeal for Generosity
The Aryaloka Buddhist Center is growing fast and attracting more people who want to learn about and live the Dharma. Our mission is to create the best possible conditions for you to explore, practice and share the Buddhist spiritual path for the benefit of all beings.
We are asking you to support the community for the benefit of all.
The annual appeal is a vital funding source for Aryaloka along with Sangha night donation, retreats and other programs. Unlike the other sources, though, the monthly pledge provides the bedrock of certainty to our monthly income, and enables us to better plan and dedicate the resources towards teaching and spreading the Dharma throughout the region.
Aryaloka depends on the energy, vision and donations of all of us to succeed in its vision of spreading the Dharma. Many of you are active in that effort, and for that we thank you! Your support has helped us create a wonderful Buddhist community.
We invite your financial participation in the life of Aryaloka, and ask that you consider a generous monthly pledge to Aryaloka. As we look ahead to the possibilities that the coming year holds, can we count on your support to grow and prosper? Our programs, classes and retreats don’t cover our costs, and that’s why pledges from people like you are so very important.
If you’re already pledging, sadhu! We are grateful, and appreciate your dana.
If you’ve not yet pledged, will you join us?
Your contribution – large or small – makes all the difference. Thanks in advance for pledging your financial support to Aryaloka’s 2013 Pledge Drive!

How to Make a Pledge
With your pledge, you can keep the wheel of the Dharma turning! By contributing during our Pledge Drive, you are supporting our work, and our Center, in a tangible and much-appreciated way.
Online pledges using a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) or PayPal account can be made through PayPal by clicking the button below. Please Note: Making a pledge online will begin your pledge immediately. If you would like to wait until the new year to begin your pledge, please contact the office instead of donating online.
Pledge Offline by Credit Card or Bank Payment:
If you don’t want to pledge online, or would like to pledge a different amount, you can set up a pledge offline too. 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.
Please contact the Aryaloka office to make arrangements by calling 603-659-5456 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can download this year’s pledge form, fill it out and mail it to Aryaloka. Pledge forms should be returned to the Aryaloka office by December 17th.
