The Wat Saket Thai Buddhist Temple

Organized by: Crowdrise Foundation

The Wat Saket Thai Buddhist Temple is fundraising for a new purchase of land for a Buddhist Temple. Thousands of people have benefited from learning Buddhist meditation through our weekly drop-in sessions and regular courses and retreats over this time. Similarly, many people have discovered or delved more deeply into Buddhism through courses, regular talks and study groups. We are run largely by volunteers and receive no government or corporate support. The centre covers its basic costs with fees paid by individuals for courses, classes and retreats, and donations. Why are we collecting funds? Our current location is not ideal for our activities: it is too limited for our class and course needs. There is a very strong demand for our regular meditation classes, which we expect will only increase with time. We are currently in rented premises and would like to purchase our own building to expand our courses and activities. Purchasing our own centre will allow us to generate income as well as economise on some of our costs. We have been fundraising for 18 months and now have a deposit. Ethical fundraising activities As Buddhists, we like to raise money in an ethical way and have a positive effect on society, so we consider the ethical implications of every fundraising activity we ask people to support us in. Our work is aimed entirely at helping people to live more peaceful, thoughtful and compassionate lives. We really appreciate whatever support you can give us to assist in our work.  How will your gift be used? The whole of your gift will go towards the purchase and maintenance of our new premises. Are donations tax deductible? Yes Will I receive a receipt for my donation? Yes, immediately sent to you by email when approved.
