The Leadership Of The Santa Cruz Zen Center

Forty Years of Continual Practice Supported by Donations

precepts

Our Soto Zen practice has been maintained at 113-115 School Street for over 40 years. The Center has thrived due to the commitment, dedication, and financial donations of Zen students and priests.

Becoming a member with a regular monthly, quarterly, or annual donation is one way to support our ongoing practice opportunities. "No one is turned away due to a lack of funds" is a basic tenet for most of our offerings.

A Contributing Member donates up to $39 monthly and is eligible to participate in Board of Trustee elections and enjoy our library. A Sustaining Member donates $40 or more monthly and receives reduced fees on classes, sesshins, and other events.

Having a reliable source of income ensures that the practice of Buddha dharma can be sustained for future generations.
