Grand Rapids Buddhist
Temple Pledge Campaign

The Grand Rapids Buddhist Temple operates on a donation-only basis in keeping with our practice of generosity or dana. Dana, is the practice of giving and receiving, and it is central to Buddhist practice.

Because of your new, renewed, and increased pledges, we reached 49% of our goal. That, along with existing contributions, we achieved our $2000 goal for monthly expenses.

Because of you, we’re able to keep our temple open to share the Dharma in our community and beyond.
