Dorje Denma Ling:  2010 Year-End Financial Update   

 

Dorje Denma Ling is Shambhala’s international land centre in Canada, located in the heart of the Kalapa Capital region in the Atlantic Provinces.  We invite you to join us as we embark on a transformative phase in our development, inspired by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche’s commitment to teach here each year.  In addition to providing a container for the Sakyong to open the precious vajrayana teachings of the Scorpion Seal terma, we are looking forward to hosting a Vajrayana Seminary here for the first time, in 2012 or 2013, which will be a major landmark for Dorje Denma Ling and this entire Kalapa region. 

 

The 10% Advantage

"Making a ten percent shift in our attitude every day has monumental consequences." - Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche in “Ruling Your World”

 

I find this idea inspiring. Similarly, if we all could give ten percent more of our generosity to Shambhala or any of its entities, there would be a monumental shift in our financial health as we move forward in this key moment in our history.  Please consider this as you decide how to give to the places or causes which inspire and support you.  Here are some of the ways you can give to Dorje Denma Ling:

 

Monthly recurring donations

Please consider beginning or increasing your monthly recurring donation to Dorje Denma Ling.  Any amount goes a very long way toward our financial stability and sustainability.

 

Unrestricted one-time donations

These go to support the general operating costs of Dorje Denma Ling (maintenance of buildings, grounds and vehicles; salaries, room & board for staff; utilities and other costs).

 

Scholarship fund

You can help support participants who are not able to pay the full price of programs.  Dorje Denma Ling currently gives over $85,000/year in program discounts and scholarships.

 

Restricted capital giving

We are building our fund for the exciting new development project, currently underway, which will strengthen and establish Dorje Denma Ling as a fully-functioning and radiant manifestation of Shambhala culture and society and a major teaching seat for Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.  We welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss this with you further.  All contributions, large and small, help move us forward.
