Mahapajapati Monastery is supported entirely by donations.

As a renunciant community, our needs are simple. But like any home or organization, we have expenses for food, property taxes, building and maintenance projects, liability and fire insurance, car insurance, car repairs, and gasoline, and we have regular monthly bills for electricity, propane, phone, internet, and trash collection. Please consider supporting Mahapajapati Monastery so that we may continue to dedicate ourselves to living the Buddha's teachings and providing a refuge for those who wish to visit, as well as for those who are inspired by our practice from afar.

If you would like to make a financial donation to support the monastery, you can pledge monthly or offer a one-time donation, in accordance with your means and inspiration.

May your generosity bring you lasting happiness. And may it provide the gift of Dhamma to all those who come in contact with Mahapajapati Monastery.
