Triratna Buddhist Community (Surrey) Registered Charity No. 270460
The Buddhist Centre is a registered charity which relies upon the good will and support of the people who regularly take part in our activities. This is an opportunity to deepen involvement in the Centre, making and strengthening friendships through working together - and also to offer something in return for what the Centre gives. We are constantly looking for people who can offer time - even just an occasional couple of hours - to various projects to help improve our centre and spread the Dharma.
If you would like to help then please contact us on 0208 688 8624, by email via the Contact Us page above or pop into the Centre. Any help you can offer will be very much appreciated. All applicants should have experience of attending the meditation classes at the centre.
Donations: Help us make a difference !
Buddhism improves the quality of our lives in so many ways: It makes us more aware and appreciative of the world around us; it helps us to know and understand ourselves better; It helps us in our relationships with others, helping us to be kinder, more patient, more understanding, it helps us to be more confident of our place in the world, bringing a higher meaning into our lives, giving us a path and a goal.
The purpose of the Croydon Buddhist Centre is to bring this to the people of Croydon by teaching the Dharma and by providing supportive conditions for its practice. To do this we need money. We need more money than we can raise through classes and courses. We are, to a large extent, dependent upon peoples generosity. Like all other charities we need to be able to communicate ourselves to others, to communicate what we are about in such a way that others connect with our vision and want to support us.
If you would like to help support the Croydon Buddhist Centre by making donations, there are several ways you can do this.
Directly - 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.
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 take payments from your card. We're working on enabling Gift Aid through Paypal but at present we can take non Gift Aid donations by following this link.
Via Standing Order - Making donations by Monthly Standing Order has to be the simplest and most effective way of supporting a charity. You can choose how much is donated to the charity each month and for whatever length of time. In addition, 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. Our address is; Croydon Buddhist Centre, 96-98 High Street. Croydon, Surrey. CR0 1ND
