Helping Us to Help Others
Wellington Buddhist Centre is a registered not-for-profit charity. The Centre Teachers and supporters all give their time for free, but we still have rent and other expenses to cover. As the Centre does not receive any money from outside sources and we have to cover our expenses through course fees and donations. Therefore we have given suggested donations to cover these costs.
These donations are voluntary and nobody will be excluded from an event if they can’t afford to pay.
A monthly standing order is way to make regular donations to the Centre and as we are a charity you can claim a tax refund. A monthly standing donation also covers donations to all classes, except workshops.
Simply go to your bank’s website, or one of its branches, and fill out a form with the following details.

Running a Buddhist Centre is quite a big operation and we have no paid staff to do it so we always appreciate any help we can get. This could be anything from decorating the shrine to administration or distributing publicity. Please let us know if you would like to help
