Generosity and support of the monastic community are central to Buddhist practice. Wat Sacramento has a number of methods to provide this critical support.
Be sure to use an envelope or form that includes the donor's name, address, and contact information if you would like a receipt using any of the methods below.
You may indicate the purpose and use of your donation or leave it to the Lay Committee to decide according to current needs. Possible choices are:
Make your contributions to Wat Sacramento payable to:
Wat Sacramento Buddhavanaram.
Send donations to:
Wat Sacramento Buddhavanaram
151 South Ave
Sacramento, CA 95838
Please do not mail cash.
The temple currently accepts online donations using PayPal. A Donate link is available on our web site Home page. Additional Donate links may also be added to event notices as appropriate.
There are a number of donation boxes for specific purposes located within the main shrine room. There are separate boxes for: Monks Support, Temple Maintenance and Utilities, and General Support. Additionally, there are donation slots under the Seven Weekday Buddhas (Where some traditionally make donations according to the week day they, a relative, or friend were born.) and occasionally a donation box will be set up for special projects and equipment purchases (i.e. well renovation or repair, new printer or other technology, etc.).
The Buddhist lay community benefits from properly and adequately supporting the monastic community. Without our Right Effort, the monks might feel obliged to stray from the precepts, harming all Buddhists. There are many ways we can properly uphold the Buddha's Teaching - correctly managing financial support is one of them.
Please remember, monks are not supposed to hold or accept money. Use the various on-site donation boxes, available online methods, mail, or by contacting a member of the lay community to offer your support when visiting the temple.
