In the continuing practice of loving kindness, we volunteer our time and effort to assist many organizations around the Grand Rapids area. Not only is this a great opportunity to give back to our community, it is also an excellent way to get to know our fellow Sangha members as we work together.

Grand Rapids Buddhist Temple

Consider the contribution you can make by using your talents and skills in ways that impact our temple and our community while building relationships.

Support Our Community

The Red Project provides people with access to the tools, information, resources, and support in a safe space where they can exercise their right to explore better health choices. Visit their website to donate.

The AYA Youth Collective (formerly HQ) is a drop-in center for youth in a housing crisis—who do not have a safe place to call home, are couch surfing, sleeping outside, or just need a safe place to connect with caring adults. Drop off donations from their wishlist at AYA.
