2017 Appeal

2017 BMC
$15,000 Matching Gift Challenge

Each year, Boston Meditation Center needs to plan for how we will support ourselves financially in meeting our mission of making the teachings of the Buddha available to all who are interested. The generosity (dana)  of our community is essential to making that happen.

In 2017, we have an opportunity to get a financial boost thanks to a donor who has come forward with a generous two-for-one fundraising challenge: If we can raise $5,000 from the community by April 15, this will be matched by a $10,000 gift, for a total of $15,000. That means each dollar we raise in this effort will be tripled, but we have only three months to meet this goal.

We invite you to consider what BMC means to you, and then give as generously as you are able. Your gift will benefit not only you, but every new person who comes through the door in 2017. Also consider that if you have the means to give, you are helping make the Buddha’s teachings available to those without financial resources, which is also part of our mission.

To make a tax-deductible contribution, please click the button below. If you would like to spread your contribution out over the remainder of the year, please contact us, but we need your commitment by April 15.

Your generosity will help us cover rent and monthly overhead, expand our offerings, support our outstanding teachers, and enhance our financial aid resources so that we can make our offerings available to everyone, independently of their ability to pay.

For additional information on this or other ways to give to BMC, please contact Jameson Beekman at info@bostonmeditationcenter.org or by voice/text at 401-258-3865.

Thank you for all your generous support of Boston Meditation Center.

True giving is not an economic exchange; it is a generative act. 
It does not subtract from what we have; 
it multiples the effect we can have in the world.
