Annual Fund: Support Zen Practice
The Zen Center Annual Fund supports our teachers, dharma offerings, and practice centers. The financial health and viability of Tassajara, City Center, and Green Gulch Farm are wholly dependent on the financial health of Zen Center.
Income from Tassajara summer guest season, our members, students and programs covers only a limited portion of our annual expenses. Your annual fund donation keeps the zendo doors open, our teachers teaching, and transforms lives. Please give as generously as you can.
Widening the Circle Capital Campaign The San Francisco Zen Center community has launched a capital campaign to establish a strong and sustaining foundation so that we can continue to offer the world the benefits of Zen practice.
