We Did It!

We passed our goal and raised over $13,500! Thanks to everyone who contributed to this important annual fundraiser to support the Dirt and Cloud Zendos, Domyo, and our sangha! The board recognizes that not everyone is able to contribute above and beyond regular member pledges and thanks each of you for all that you do for Bright Way Zen – volunteering, participating in weekly practices, book club, grief support, poetry group, and Dharma study groups.

Wherever life takes you, you can count on Bright Way Zen to maintain a warm and welcoming sangha anytime, anywhere. We are pleased to announce our 2022 fall fundraising campaignDirt Zendo, Cloud Zendo: One Sangha.

Contributions to Bright Way Zen will help us:

  • Continue to cultivate Sangha and ensure this community grows even stronger in the coming years
  • Provide a sangha home for those both near and far, making the Dharma available to everyone 
  • Deepen and expand practice opportunities and programs

Your donation plays an essential part in reaching our goal, either through a one-time gift or by increasing your regular membership pledge. 

Even if your participation in the Sangha wanes at times, you know Bright Way Zen remains as a refuge and resource for you.

With deep bows,
The Bright Way Zen Board
