Support the Center

Kaihan Brushed 5x96

Many people have given in order to create this Center, and this Center is our gift of the Dharma to others, and to those who come after us. The North Carolina Zen Center is a non-profit entity which is supported entirely by donations. Without the contributions of its many supporters it could not exist.

Ways You Can Donate

The word ‘Dana’ is an ancient Sanskrit word, which is related to our English word, ‘donate.’  Dana is the act of giving, and Dana is what allows the Center to continue in its mission.  There are a number of ways to support the Center. Donations may be made directly to the Center itself. Cash and checks are accepted. Checks should be made out to The North Carolina Zen Center. Contributions may be mailed or may be made in person at scheduled services and events by leaving them in the Dana box outside the door of the zendo.

The Center is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Gifts to the Center are tax deductible.




One-Time or Monthly Online Donations Through PayPal

The Center accepts on-line donations through PayPal. You may use your credit card or Paypal account to make your secure tax-deductible donation immediately. Please keep in mind that it is very helpful for the Center to have a measure of predictability to its finances. Committing to a small monthly donation is greatly appreciated. You can do this through PayPal, or by direct arrangement with the Center. Please click on the link above to make your secure online donation, and please accept our sincere “Thank You!”
