Thank you for considering making a donation! 

In Sanskrit and Pali, dāna means giving or generosity. The Seattle Buddhist Center runs on generosity. Teachers and class teams offer their time, skills and experience voluntarily.  All financial donations go to keeping the Center running so that we can continue to offer classes, courses, retreats and other events to anyone wishing to attend. We are an entirely volunteer-run community.  

We are a 501(c)3 organization and your donations are tax deductible. Our legal name is "Seattle Buddhist Center".


We welcome donations any time and of any amount! However, it really helps us to plan when people are able to pledge in advance and pay a monthly or annual amount.

You can modify your pledge at any time.

You can choose to set a recurring payment so you don’t have to think about it. If you have questions or would like to make a pledge, please email us or ask in person at the Center.

Ways to Donate


Payments can be made via Paypal. There is also the option in Paypal to make the donation recurring, which is one way to make a pledge.


There is a “Dāna Bowl” next to the entrance to the center for cash donations.

By Check

Checks should be made payable to “Seattle Buddhist Center”. They can be put in the Dāna bowl or mailed to: 

Seattle Buddhist Center
3019 NE 127th St.
PO Box 25132
Seattle, WA 98125

Payroll Deduction & Employer Matching

Your gift to the Seattle Buddhist Center may be matched by your employer. We are integrated with Benevity, a platform used by many companies for donation via payroll deduction or donation matching. 

Please check with your employer to find out whether they offer donation matching, and contact us via email if you or your employer need more information.
