Donations, Payments and Dana

As we are an NGO, we rely on donations, membership and income from courses to cover our running costs, including our soup kitchen. We are able to give tax certificates for general donations, and for donations to the soup kitchen and monastic funds (unfortunately membership and course fees are excluded).

We can take credit card/debit card payments onsite, and we accept cash. Otherwise electronic payments are preferred.

TAX CERTIFICATES

For a tax certificate for general donations, soup kitchen donations or the monastics fund, please send an email to jsdfinance@kagyu.org.za with proof of payment.

DANA

Our Dharma teachers are not paid for their facilitation of courses and retreats, and they rely on donations. Dana – Sanskrit for Offerings – is welcomed – there is a Dana box in the foyer of the centre, or you can do an electronic transfer to our Main account, with a reference “Dana”+”Teacher” + “Your name”. The amount of dana to offer depends on the perceived benefits, and your financial situation.
