If you would like to make a donation directly to the centre, you can give a donation when you visit the centre. If you pay tax, please fill in a Gift Aid envelope. This allows us to claim back 25p in Tax for every £1 you donate.


Alternatively you can send us a cheque made payable to Triratna Buddhist Community Surrey and post it with a Gift Aid declaration form, which can be printed off here


We are happy to recieve donations without Gift Aid if you do not pay tax or would rather not complete the Gift Aid form.

Directly to the Centre

Via PayPal

As the charity has a PayPal account, you can donate funds directly online. You don't even have to have a Paypal account as they can process payments from your debit/credit card through their secure payment gateway. We're working on enabling Gift Aid through Paypal but at present we can take non Gift Aid donations by following this link.

Monthly Standing Order

Making donations by Monthly Standing Order has to be the simplest and most effective way of supporting any charity. You can choose how much is donated to the appeal fund each month and for whatever length of time.


In addition, If you pay tax, you can Gift Aid all your donations with just one form. Therefore if you complete a standing order for £10 a month with Gift Aid, we will recieve £12.50. If you'd like to complete a Standing Order Donation, please print out the form here, complete and post it to us.



The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel Appeal

The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel Appeal was launched on Sangha Morning on Saturday 15th September. The aim of the appeal is to completely refurbish our main shrine room. We have estimated that the total project will cost around £50,000. We're very pleased to update that we should have enough funds to start the work in Spring 2015. This has been made possible with over £26,000 in donations and fundraising, the generous offer of a legacy and funds from the centre's classes and events after paying off the mortgage.


We will be keeping you updated on the project as it unfolds and we will still welcome all donations towards the shrine room project, as the more we fundraise the more the centre has for future projects.


Below are some ways in which you can contribute to our fundraising appeal and we will be adding more details about activities etc in the coming weeks. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us here

Via MyDonate

BT run a free charity donation and fundraising website where you can get involved in fundraising for our charity appeal or you can get ideas for fundraising. Simply visit our charity page following the link below.

Whilst the Fundraising appeal is ongoing the centre will still rely on the generosity of our sangha in the donations they give towards the running of the Buddhist Centre and its activities. Please continue to show your support for the Buddhist Centre through visiting our donations page here. Thank you
