In the Pali language of ancient Buddhism, the word for compassion is karuna, and the word for generosity is dana. Compassion is at the heart of a mature spiritual practice. As we meditate, our feelings of compassion extend from a close circle of family and friends to a global outreach.
To expand our practice and engage with international and local needs, Insight Meditation South Bay’s Outreach and Aid Team supports various charitable projects by organizing fundraising events, service teams, or related projects.
We Support Projects In Three Areas
- International aid
- Scholarship support for IMSB and Bodhi-Retreats programs
- Local charity projects for the needy.
Ways to Give
We welcome your support!
You may Donate Now toward any of our projects by making a donation to IMSB and designating the gift for:
- Karuna Outreach and Aid Fund
- Scholarship fund
- Prajna Vihar School
- Undesignated funds may be used where most needed to support any IMSB activity.
Employer Matching Gift Programs
If your employer offers a matching gift program, please increase the value of your gift by requesting a match at your place of business, and qualify by donating to the Prajna Vihar School through OWCF’s account. Please designate the Prajna Vihar School as the recipient of your generosity. Many businesses will readily match donations made through One World Children’s Fund, but may hesitate due to the religious associations of IMSB.
We welcome your involvement and interest in our Outreach Projects. We are particularly interested in hands-on group activities.
