In Buddhism, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless. We also practice dana–or generosity–by making monetary offerings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports the sangha, the larger Dharma community, our social action projects, as well as your own practice.

We invite you to make a donation for the many service projects and general operations of Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community. We extend our boundless gratitude to everyone who gives to Bread Loaf Mountain to make our life possible.

In addition to giving online, you can also send a check via US Mail made out to Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community, which can be mailed to:
