Join the PIMC Stewardship Circle

Dear Friends of PIMC,


Our community has grown remarkably in the ten years since we bought the center. Attendance at the Sunday morning meditation averages sixty people and social gatherings after the talks often overflow the living room. We reach a large audience far outside of Portland through Robert's online dharma talks. Evening and morning meditation groups continue to grow and Doug's six week Introduction to Mindfulness classes are attracting more and more people each time they are offered. Kalyana Mitta (spiritual friendship) groups have formed and those who attend find them to be a wonderful addition to their spiritual journey. Every Sunday our precious children have their own gatherings that foster, through play, the values taught in the Dharma. Our recently renovated Library holds the wisdom of many of those who have come before. A next generation of Dharma teachers is taking the teaching seat, and new classes are coming. All of these spiritually enriching activities are provided with an open hand to our Buddhist community by PIMC.


PIMC exists, and thrives, through your loving presence, meditation and generosity. The Buddha taught that generosity is one of the central practices of spiritual life. In giving we develop our ability to let go, to relinquish craving, and to manifest our interdependence. Your financial contributions sustain the ability of PIMC to make the Dharma available to all who seek it. As the community grows and thrives, there is a need for the generosity of our community members to grow.


Our "Sustainable Fundraising Goal" is to raise our monthly income by $5000. By increasing our monthly donations by $5000, we will be able to meet monthly obligations and continue to offer current programs.  This will also allow us to create a much-needed "safety net" for unanticipated operating expenses.


By joining our Stewardship Circle you will establish ongoing support for the continued teaching of the Dharma. If fifty community members join our Stewardship Circle at $100 per month that generosity will ensure that practicing the Dharma will continue in a tradition that has existed for 2800 years. Please join our Stewardship Circle now. Sign up to have your monthly contribution to PIMC automatically deducted from your bank account. Your generous monthly contribution will be used to maintain and further develop the spiritual home that nourishes you, and others, so deeply.


With deep gratitude for your generous support,
