Comfortable chairs for the Dhamma Hall – We are wanting to ensure adequate seating for times when the Dhamma Hall is full. We are hoping to be able to add another row or two of chairs. Here is a link to the type of chair we have been using. We would be happy for a gift of one or two!
Zafu meditation cushions in black – We are wanting to ensure adequate seating for times when the Dhamma Hall is full. We are hoping for 8-10 more zafus with sturdy washable cotton covers and buckwheat filling which can be adjusted to varying firmness. With these we will be able to add another row. Here is a link and another one showing what we are looking for. We would also be happy for a gift of one or two!
Grant writer with experience – We have recently identified several opportunities for grant funds ranging from $5,000-$20,000 that dovetail nicely with our projects and programs. We are hoping that someone connected to our community with grant writing experience would be willing to write a grant or two. If you might be interested, please contact Greg Satir at email@example.com or (503) 233-6498.
Storage cabinet for cleaning supplies – We have a need to keep cleaning supplies for upstairs in the upstairs restroom. We would like a cabinet with closing doors for a broom, mop, cleansers, toilet paper, etc. We have identified this cabinet (Solgul Wardrobe in white) at Ikea Portland that would be terrific. We will be using mop and broom with short, collapsible, or telescoping handles.

Pocket Talker personal amplifiers – We have learned that some in our community are having trouble hearing. We are hoping for several personal amplifiers to keep in the back of the room to be borrowed for the session when needed and left behind on leaving. When choosing the amplifier, please consider the ability to wipe them with sanitizer for cleanliness and the power source. If it has a common type of headphone jack, users can bring their own buds or headset if they prefer. Here is an example of this item.

Has been given! Anumodana! Funding for blubrry.com media hosting – We have started with a small subscription at $12 a month that allows us to post 3 hours a month of teaching as a podcast. We would like to both keep up with current teaching and post some past teachings. To do this we would need $20 ($8 more) per month to post 7.5 hours of teaching. We are hoping for the funding for this item as we already have an account.
Has been given! Anumodana! Funding ($75-$150) for an updated website theme – It has been years since our website has been updated. Since then, websites have become more functional and flexible. For example, calendars perform better, and there are new ways to showcase photos. While this is not necessary, it would be helpful to have an up to date online presence.
