Supporting the Dharma

Millennium Park Zen - Please Support Our Practice
Dana Paramita (generosity) is one of the core practices in Buddhism, and we see it as an activity that helps each of us to awaken.  Charitable giving affirms our place in the wider community.  It helps us to be aware of, and move beyond, our narrow ideas of self-interest.  By making a donation to The Chicago Zen Meditation Community, you are helping the practice of many beings.

In our Sangha, we do not set a cost to attend our regular meetings or sesshins.  Instead, we ask for a donation that will help us to offer the Dharma.  Essentially, we ask you to give, not to purchase anything for yourself, but so that others can also practice.  With rent, utilities and practice supplies, our expenses are not insubstantial.  We hope that you will be generous to whatever extent you can.  

Donations can be made at any time by Chase QuickPay or Zelle to  You can use the QR codes below to make a donation, or donate via PayPal by clicking on the "Donate" button. 
Checks can also be mailed to: 
            Chicago Zen Meditation Community

We are deeply grateful for your generosity.
