Donations through your bank

Employer matching contributions
Some employers match charitable contributions and help us receive more donations to expand our service to the community and start new programs. Please consider talking to your employer to see whether they have a gift matching program.
If you are visiting the temple or attending any of our special events offer your donations to the monks or volunteers during those events. We can accept cash or checks. Please also find two DipJars where your can donate a set amount that display on them with your credit card.
