The Vancouver Shambhala Centre is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers. All our funds come from donations from program participants, friends and members. Donations are a way to express appreciation for what our Centre offers — free meditation instruction and practice opportunities, a clearly defined path of practice and study, a range of community activities and more, for the benefit of all — and help make it available to others.

We gratefully accept donations, big or small, made in any way for any purpose. The spirit of our approach is expressed in our Generosity Policy. To make a donation using PayPal (a secure and widely used electronic payment system, which accepts major credit cards), please visit our Giving page.
