We count on the annual fundraiser to meet Bright Way Zen’s operating expenses. Your donation is an essential part of reaching our goal and contributing to our growth. We encourage you to consider a one-time gift or to increase your membership pledge as you are able. Be on the lookout for a follow-up text, email, or phone call from a board member who will ask how you can support our campaign at this time.
