Kagyu Ling and its associated groups are run by volunteers. We have no membership fees and don’t charge for most of our classes so our income comes largely from donations.
We really appreciate the donations that visitors often make when they visit the Centre or our associated groups but these do not cover our running costs, which amount to over £8000 per month.
Without one-off donations from members of our community to fund specific projects or monthly standing orders to help us pay our bills we wouldn’t be able to provide the precious opportunities that we do to study and practise Buddhism and meditation together.
Most people who make a standing order tend to donate around £30 per month but we are grateful for any regular payments, however small, because knowing we can rely on that income allows us to plan.
If you’d like to take out a standing order, please download a standing order form or pick one up from the Centre. Remember that you can also gift aid your donation using the gift aid form, allowing us to claim back the tax you have paid. We are a registered charity: Kagyu Dechen Buddhism (North West). Charity no: 1145791
Alternatively, if you’d like to make a one-off donation please use the online donation form.
