The Buddha’s community, his teaching and indeed his life, were made possible by the townspeople whose donations supported him, day by day, meal by meal. And from that day to this, nothing has changed. We rely on our community’s generosity of heart to continue walking on the Buddha’s Way, day after day, year after year.
Help ensure that this practice, these temples, can be an inspiration and a refuge for you and for generations to come. Please accept our deepest gratitude for your support.

If you’re 70 1/2 or older, you can make tax-free, qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from your IRA accounts directly to the Zen Studies Society of up to $100,000 per year. Starting at age 73, you must take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRAs. You can fulfill that requirement by designating those RMDs as qualified charitable distributions to the Zen Studies Society, and avoid paying taxes on those gifts.
