We would like to invite you to consider membership in the Dharma Rain Zen Center. Membership represents commitment to the sangha and the Buddhist training that the sangha embodies. Membership is required to vote for the members of Board of Directors and on any other issues that come up for a vote. Members pledging at any level receive access to the library and discounts on fee events. Some classes and events are only open to members.
Benefactor: $200+/month. Benefactors are investing in the long-term development of Dharma Rain Zen Center. This development improves the resources we already have, and supports their continued availability to the growing number of people seeking the Dharma in the greater Portland area.
Sustaining Member: $100-$199/month. Sustaining Members help keep fees for retreats and other events low, and allow us to continue to offer many services, workshops, and classes free of charge to the general community.
Supporting Member: $50-$99/month. Pledging at this level helps to keep facilities open and operating, and to support the monastic staff who serve the temple.
Center Friend: $30-$49/month. Pledges at this level help cover our basic expenses such as utilities, food, and general supplies.
Contributing Member: Those who pledge whatever they can afford are always welcome and appreciated. Those who donate at least $15/month ($180/year) are Contributing Members, and receive all the benefits of membership.
