you have the means, please consider a donation tonight. We operate
entirely on the sangha's acts of generosity. Your donation will help us
meet the minimum payment for the teacher and provide some support to the
ongoing operations of the sangha as well. Everyone is welcome at all of
our events, regardless of ability to donate. Therefore, those who
donate more are helping to make the center accessible to all.
A note about dana for Wednesday night Dharma talks: Our
teachers receive 60% of the dana given for Wednesday night Dharma
talks, as they traditionally have. That said, since the pandemic, dana
given for Dharma talks has decreased. As a result, IWM now provides
teachers with a minimum guaranteed amount. If you wish to give
additional dana solely to the teacher for this Dharma talk, there will
be an opportunity later in the process below.
