Croydon Buddhist Centre
We know from our own experience that our centre has made a difference to our lives, that’s why we come. We want to be able to reach out to more people and so to make more of a difference, to help change the world through the Dharma.
We don’t have the money to expand. The centre costs £300 a day to run and we just about break even. So if we carry on with current income, we can only do the same as we’ve been doing - which has been limited, for example by not having a chair.
Vajragupta is prepared to move to Croydon to join our team. He will need to be supported (which will cost £8k per year) Mokshadarshini has become women’s mitra convenor and will be supported by the charity.
So, we have the opportunity to expand and deliver a bigger vision. But we need your help to raise more income for the centre and invest in our future.
Could you give a one-off donation or, even better, to give via a monthly standing order to the centre? If you already give,could you increase the amount you give?
Centres get most of their income in through monthly donations – in Croydon there’s lots of scope to expand our income in this way.
Our Standing Order Appeal gives you an opportunity to strengthen your practice of generosity and make more of a difference in the world.
Please complete the standing order form here, and if you are a tax payer, please sign the Gift Aid Declaration. Please drop the form into us.
If you have any questions about completing standing order forms, fundraising or Gift Aid, please contact a member of the
Centre Team on firstname.lastname@example.org
