Tubten Kunga Buddha Project: In order to help our center accumulate merit and share the Dharma, Geshe la has requested that we save money in order to purchase a new life-size statue of Shakyamuni Buddha for the center. We have been saving for a long time, and we are getting close to our goal! But the cost of preparation, ritual blessings, and shipment from the Tibetan colony in India is very high. Please consider making a $5 or $10 donation to the Buddha project by Pay Pal to help us accomplish this important project. Having a pure, holy image of the Buddha in South Florida will bring many blessings to the people here, and we believe this is extremely important for the community. When making your tax-deductible online donation, please indicate “Buddha Project” in the message area.

Our Commitment to Financial Transparency

You are always welcome to see how your donation dollars are being spent, by inspecting our records. We keep our operating expenses as low as possible so your donations are not wasted. Everyone working for the center is a volunteer, including Geshe la who receives only a bare minimum cost-of-living stipend, but no salary.

We will soon begin publishing our monthly revenue statements online. In the meantime, please email Mike if you have any questions about our finances.
