We Invite You to Support your dharma home
What place does KSC hold in your heart? What meaning does KSC have in your life? What does our Center provide for you? The 2018 Support Your Dharma Home campaign (SYDH) offers an opportunity to express your appreciation in a tangible way. Each individual’s participation in this fundraising effort directly impacts the sustainability of our dharma center.
Every year, the KSC Board of Directors creates an annual budget to project the funding needed for ongoing Center operations. Operations include Lama support, building maintenance and operations, administrative salary and other administrative costs. In addition, other necessary projects are identified, but are not funded by ongoing operations income from sustaining members, classes, events, etc. (Please note that retreat fees only cover the actual costs of the facility and meals. Retreat dana offerings go directly to Lama Support.) We rely on your generosity to accomplish these plans.
The projects for 2018 include:
· Permanent metal railing around patio, including necessary stucco work $4,500
· Permanent fencing along upper parking lot $4,000
· Adding website capability to accept online payments as well as purchase of equipment to be able to accept credit/debit cards at events and class registration $2,500
· Mounting the 12 prayer wheels (already acquired from Lama Lodru Rinpoche) in preparation for installation $1500 estimate
As part of the ongoing “sustainable Lama” planning, the Lamas have reconfigured their teaching responsibilities. While we know this change will help to maintain our Lama’s health and extend their long-term availability to the sangha, it does affect the Center’s income stream. Accordingly, the center’s operations and separate projects listed above rely on special efforts from our sangha, friends and supporters to help us reach our goal of $25,000.
Your committed support allows KSC to move forward with confidence, so that we are able to complete this year’s projects. We ask you to sincerely consider how you will financially participate in SYDH for 2018.
Thank you for helping to sustain our precious Center and the teachings here.
May the Dharma flourish, and may all your acts of generosity return to you in countless ways!
