The Dharma Charitable Foundation challenged us to increase monthly donations to $1,000 a month, and we did it! We have reached our Matching Goal. In fact, we have just raised $1,100 a month in new and increased monthly giving. Reaching this goal means The Dharma Charitable Foundation is giving us a generous gift of $5,000.
This gift and the additional $13,200 each year in stable monthly giving from our community are so important to the future of Friends of the Dhamma. We have a more stable income for our building and our Spiritual Director and we have a large gift to help with immediate expenses.
So many people have come together to make this possible. We are so grateful to our community for helping stabilize our presence in Portland and helping support our Spiritual Director in her teaching and pastoral care. Anumodana!
