This year we also do our “Loving-kindness Funds” campaign to raise money to help pay down our mortgage loan. Our goal in 2019 is to raise $20,000 via pledges of $ 100.00 toward that end. We have divided this amount into 200 shares and each share is a $100 donation. If you would like to donate and help the temple raise money for our mortgage, please consider doing so at this festival as you are able. For checks, please make your donation to “Wat Buddhametta” or “Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center.” We also accept cash and your entire donation is tax deductible as Wat Buddhametta is a 501 C 3 nonprofit organization. You may also pledge your donation online at www.tucsonbuddhistcenter.org
