All donations are fully tax-deductible. In accordance with IRS guidelines, payment for retreats is considered a donation and payment for classes is not.


Membership brings with it eligibility to vote at the annual meeting and to serve on the board, a subscription to Primary Point the journal of the Kwan Um School of Zen and is a prerequisite for precepts. Dues are paid directly to the Kwan Um School of Zen, we get 50%, and the rest is used to support the infrastructure that we rely on.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEMBER TO PRACTICE WITH US.

Regular donations can be scheduled through your bank’s bill payment system or through PayPal.

Please let us know if your donation is for a specific event (e.g., a class or a retreat). And thank you for helping us keep the dharma flowing!
