Your gift matters!
We rejoice with every act of generosity, and we appreciate your support for IMSB, our teachers and programs. There are several ways to donate to support our work.
If you have a PayPal account, you may use this button to give through PayPal’s Giving Fund. When using the Giving Fund your gift will not incur service charges, but it requires you to have a PayPal account. You may donate either with a credit card or make a transfer from your PayPal account. If you want your donation to be used for teacher dana or credited to one of our specific funds, and if you do not find a place within the transaction process to add these instructions, please email treasurer instructing the treasurer to credit your gift for teacher dana or the fund of your choice. Any donations that are undesignated will be allocated to General Operations and used where most needed.
If you do not have a PayPal account, you may use your credit card to make one-time or recurring monthly donations through Network for Good. To offer teacher dana designate the gift as “Teacher Dana.”
Most banks as well as our Network for Good service offer convenient methods for establishing recurring monthly, quarterly, or annual donations. Recurring donations provide consistent support in ways that are efficient for both the donor and recipient. Please consider supporting us with a recurring gift designated for General Expenses, Teacher, our Building Fund or any of our funds or projects.
Checks should be made payable to Insight Meditation South Bay and mailed to:
Insight Meditation South Bay
PO Box 490
Menlo Park, CA 94026
Please include a Donation Form–Remit Slip. You may indicate the percentage of your donation dedicated to the Teacher Dana and to the Operations Dana in the memo field of the check.
Thank you for your generosity.
We are truly grateful for each and every contribution!
