Other Donations to the Centre

During this transition period for us as a centre, as we wait to move in new premises, we will miss out on regular donations, please consider donating here if you can, thank you.

Please clearly indicate what your donation is for (like "Hardship Fund" or "Donation" ...), Thank you.

Our community is based on dāna, the Buddhist principle of generosity. As part of spreading the Buddha's teachings, we think it's important that we run our centre on the basis of dāna and aim to inspire a culture of giving.

We charge minimal amounts for our activities which we're able to do because so many people generously give money and time to establish and maintain everything we enjoy at the Mid Essex Buddhist Centre.

This page provides an overview of our costs and income, as well as information about how to give.
