Lotus Blooming: $400,000 Matching Gift Challenge!

Lotus Blooming – our fundraising campaign for Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square – has received a major boost!

An anonymous donor has given us a $200,000 matching gift to help us wrap-up fundraising for Phase 1 by December 31st. Successfully finishing Phase 1 will enable us to complete our new meditation hall (“Sodo”).

To get all $200,000 of this gift, we have to raise another $200,000. Our donor will match 1:1 every new, additional or increased gift or pledge from now through December 31st – doubling the financial impact of each donation!

As of this week, we have raised $68,543.59 toward our $200,000 goal. We accept these donations with gratitude and bows.

“I contribute to Lotus Blooming because Dharma Rain is so much a part of my life. It is such a wonderful place to practice and grow, and when I look, I see a spirit that encourages me in an open-handed way.”
