The Shambhala Meditation Center of Portland is a nonprofit organization run primarily by volunteers and financially supported by membership dues, donations, and program revenues.

Donations are a way to express appreciation for what our Center offers—free meditation instruction and practice opportunities, a clearly defined path of practice and study, a range of community activities and more, for the benefit of all—and help make it available to others.

We gratefully accept donations, big or small, made in any way for any purpose. We also have dedicated funds to which you may wish to offer donations. These include:

If you would like to help support us, you can donate in person at the center, mail us a check or money order, or donate online.
