Supporting Membership


Becoming a Member of Karuna Buddhist Center is a great way to get more involved with our sangha (community of practitioners). You will be invited to Member Meetings and to vote for officers.

General membership is $5 per month, Supporting membership is $25 per month, and Patron is $50 or more per month. Members are encouraged to contribute to the center both financially and through work service according to their resources and abilities.

Nobody will be turned away from any event at our center for lack of funds. Our regular weekly meetings for meditation and study are free, though donations are always welcome. Special events such as weekend programs and guest teacher visits will have a fee attached, but please contact us if you are not able to pay the full fee and we will make arrangements to meet your individual situation.

To join, please tell us at one of our meetings, or use the contact form to give us your name, email, phone, and type of membership. You can then pay your dues by PayPal, check, Zelle, or cash.
