Ways To Give

Hello Everyone,                                                                       

We’re so grateful that you’re a part of Pacific Zen Institute. This last year more of us contributed to PZI than ever before in our history. You’ve helped people find their own path into awakening and you’ve helped us to grow and develop and keep our centers open and improve support for our teachers and pay for assistance with our admin, website and database.

Much of what we do is offered free of charge in the spirit of open hearted and reciprocal giving that’s been the staple of Zen practice for centuries. It’s not the culture most of us grew up with, but it seems to work, if we take care to explain it to people. And it lets us keep our doors open to everyone, regardless of their means. We give lots of scholarships, too, nearly 15% of our budget.

Thanks so much for being part of this culture and giving so much to keep it alive.

Very Sincerely,
The Fundraising Committee
