Dharma Gate Zen Membership

Dharma Gate Zen Center is a non-profit (501c3) and runs entirely through donations. None of our teachers or volunteers are paid and all donations go directly back to our expenses to keep the center open and operational.

We ask our members to commit to a monthly amount based on the suggested guidelines below. If you are not able to meet these suggested amounts, please donate the amount you are able to. Nobody will ever be turned away for financial reasons. We also welcome new people to come to our services for a month or so before committing to a membership.

You can either donate monthly by using the “Donate” button below, or send a check payable to: Dharma Gate Zen to our address. You can also leave a check in the dana bowl in the Zendo.
