Annual Fund Donation

Dana is the Buddhist word for giving.
It is in the spirit of generosity that IMC continues a 2500-year-old Buddhist tradition of providing the teachings freely to all who are interested. IMC does not require payment for any of our programs. IMC has no paid staff, being run solely by volunteers. Our financial support comes from the generosity of people who value what we do. The donations we receive support all our expenses, including our building, publications and wide-reaching website. Our teachers receive no salary and are supported by teacher dana. We at IMC are very grateful for all the support we receive, and are inspired by how beautifully Dharma practice develops when it does so in a field of generosity and gratitude.

All donations to IMC are tax-deductible.
Insight Meditation Center of the Mid-Peninsula is a 501(c) organization, with tax ID 77-0450217.
