Zen Heart Sangha freely offers all teachings and meditation programs to the larger community in the Buddhist tradition of dana (generosity). However, in support of our teachers, programs and those who may wish to join us in the future, we rely on and gratefully receive voluntary donations.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, all financial contributions are fully tax-deductible.

  • Checks may be made payable to Zen Heart Sangha and mailed to:
    ZHS Treasurer
    c/o 188 Martinez Rd.
    Woodside, CA 94062
  • For your convenience we also welcome online donations through PayPal, using your bank account or credit card. (You do not need a PayPal account to use this option.)

Our tradition is to send an acknowledgement to each donor as an expression of our “warm hand to warm hand” Zen practice. Although giving your mailing address on the PayPal form is optional, we hope you will feel comfortable sharing it for this purpose. (We will not save your address or use it again unless you request further contact with us.) We also welcome personal messages from you—please use the “Write a note” option at the top of the PayPal donation page.
