Ways to Donate

Following a tradition that dates back to the time of the Buddha over 2500 years ago, the teachings at Oregon Ariyamagga Okasati Refuge (OAOR) are given freely to those who seek them.

The Buddha created a system to develop a quality of openness whereby those who share the teachings are dependent on those who receive them. In the Theravadan tradition, support for monastic life has been entirely provided from lay supporters through daily acts of generosity. In this spirit, an interdependent relationship between lay community and the monastic sangha was born. Support in the form of work, money, food, building materials, services, or other help is both appreciated and needed. For more information about dana practice, click here, or here for a current dana list of needs.

Regular occurring donations are an especially helpful way to support OAOR. They help the monastics establish a budget and to make more appropriate decisions. Currently, we are raising funds to purchase a permanent home. Having consistent support is an important factor for determining what OAOR can afford to purchase. Automatic payments can be setup through PayPal (Credit Card), ACH/Direct Transfer, or Bill Pay.

Your generosity through the practice of dana allows the spiritual community to survive and flourish. Anumodana!

OAOR is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible as allowed by U.S. law.
