Previous Participants
If you have donated automatically via EFT in the past, enter the email address and password you used previously to find your record. You will see your current transactions, be able to change them or add new ones, and view your donation history.

IMPORTANT: If you log on with an email address the system doesn’t recognize, you may create a new account and inadvertently duplicate your donation. If you do not remember the email address you used, please contact the Dharma Rain Zen Center office to let us know the email address you would like to use for your account. If the email address is on record, you will be sent a temporary password to use to log on.

Note that this EFT service is not the same as using a bill pay service through your own bank, such as on-line banking. A bill pay service creates a paper check that arrives by mail, and is processed manually.


Make checks out to “Dharma Rain Zen Center” and write how the payment should be applied in the memo line. Checks can be placed in any of the begging bowls at Dharma Rain, or mailed to:
