Support The CMC

The Buddha taught out of his own generosity and compassion for all beings. In appreciation, those who received the teachings donated food, clothing, and medicine. That was the beginning of the reciprocal relationship between teachers and students in this tradition.

Today the Community Meditation Center carries on the tradition of dana (generosity). CMC offers the Buddhadharma without charging a fee. To keep our operational expenses to a minimum, we rely on the services of a small team of dedicated volunteers. At each session, there is an opportunity to make a contribution to support CMC and the teachers. This enables CMC to maintain a policy of turning no one away for lack of funds.

Legacy Giving

A charitable bequest to CMC is a simple and profound way to leave the world a better place.

It is an enduring gift that expresses your values and offers real support for a mindful future. Wouldn’t it feel meaningful to leave a lasting legacy that speaks to your desire for inner peace, wisdom, and compassion? Leaving a bequest is easy to do and you can modify your estate plan in the future if your circumstances change.

Legacy gifts can be made easily, by making CMC a beneficiary to a retirement plan, life insurance policy, brokerage account, or certificate of deposit. CMC can also be made a beneficiary under a will, trust, or other estate planning device.

Please consult your attorney or financial advisor for the best way to fulfill your wishes.

Thank you for your support of CMC.
