Dharma Refuge is in the midst of its first-ever Capital Campaign .
Our goal is to shift from being an all-volunteer organization to hiring a half-time Meditation Center Administrator early in 2020. Beginning in 2021 we also hope to begin paying a salary to our teacher, Sue Kochan, who has served on a voluntary basis since 2005.
Following 8 months of research by our Board of Directors, including examination of operations and finances of meditation centers in New York and elsewhere, we determined the following:
As a result:
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
The Great News!
Because 100% of our Board of Directors has made a pledge to the Capital Campaign, along with other households we contacted during the quiet phase of the campaign, we have already received pledges totaling $15,130. Those pledges range between $50 and $2,000. We are more than half-way to our ultimate goal of $25,000 !! Now we are reaching out to the entire sangha and beyond, inviting you to make a pledge and support our vision.
