Welcome to Willow’s first fundraising initiative.
This page is still in progress and has not yet been publicly launched. So if you’re reading this, you are one of the first visitors to our page! Welcome 🙂
Buddhist traditions have always been involved with their surrounding communities, with their monastic temples often being funded by personal offerings and donations. The Buddha himself participated in ‘alms rounds’, regularly begging for food and financial sustenance for his monastic community. These gifts have been necessary for maintaining monastic training centers for millenia.
~2500 years later, personal gifts and donations are as necessary as ever and are a key element in making monastic training a livable reality in our modern world.
As a modern monastic community, we’re doing our best to model our actions after the ancient Buddhist tradition upon which we’re founded. This includes how we raise our funds.
All of the funds raised go towards creating and maintaining Willow, our Canadian modern monastic training center. This allows us to remain committed to creating and becoming the capable and trustworthy leaders our world desperately needs.
Thank you for your love and for your support, financial or otherwise
All amounts are in Canadian dollars.
