In 2019, we provided at least 117 scholarships overall across all of our programs. This includes 88 participants paying at a rate below the standard registration rate (i.e. Scholarship Rate), seven people paying at a level below the Scholarship Rate (i.e. Partial Scholarship) and 22 people given a full, free admittance. However, a large portion of our event participants (about 40%) paid in cash on the day of events so we are unable to categorize what rate was paid in those cases. A huge thanks to the 68 people who paid above the base registration rate to help us offer scholarship rates to those in need.
The support the Dharma Center has received has enabled us to offer Buddhist teachings and practice opportunities as freely as possible, which is central to our mission and dear to our hearts. We grant scholarships whenever asked and support our resident sanghas and groups. Thank you to all those who contribute funds, time, energy and participation to this collective effort. We’re here because of you!
