2017 Double Matching Campaign

Following the joyous occasion of Lama Tsultrim Allione’s Birthday, we are honored to present the second and final year of matching campaigns.

For every dollar donated to this campaign until Dec 31, 2017, there will be a double matched donation made from an anonymous donor. Our goal is to raise a total of $250,000, that would total $750,000 in support for various projects at Tara Mandala serving the needs of our global Sangha, just like the many benefits and people served from last year’s campaign. Thank you for your tremendous generosity!

This year every dollar will be double matched. With this being the final matching campaign, it is an incredible opportunity to have any donation, large or small, hugely increase its benefit to Tara Mandala and the Dharma. For example, your gift of $100 will become $300!

Testimonial:

“This is such an exciting and ‘feel good’ moment to donate, with each gift effectively being tripled. Over the last 10 years, I’ve experienced how the development of capital projects supports retreat and practice on so many levels, while sustaining the long term vision of Tara Mandala.”
~ Anna Raithel

Last Year’s Gift Contributed To:

• The building of an additional residential cottage.
• Repairs to the Temple roof and sealing of the floors.
• Installing Temple boilers for heating.
• Water System Improvement.

2016 Completed Project: Residential Cottage

Year-round residents at Tara Mandala provide vital services to projects and communications with our Sangha members all over the world, and serve the host of retreatants that come here for deep transformational experiences. Providing living spaces for our residents is a way to show appreciation for their incredible efforts day in and day out, and is a necessity to life on the land, providing privacy and comfort, particularly during the Winter season! With the generous gifts from our 2016 matching campaign, we were able to build an additional residential cottage, which has been a very welcome addition to the Tara Mandala community!


How Can I Help?

There Are Two Main Avenues To Assist:

1. Make a one-time donation of $21, $108, $508, $1008 or more that will go to fund Capital projects which develop our infrastructure as described below.
2. Consider increasing your Sustaining Sangha membership by $7, $21, $54, or $108 per month to fuel Operations – the day-to-day functioning of the organization. Any amount helps us get to our goal of $750,000!

2017 Upcoming Project: Feeding Your Demons® Clinical Trial.

This year we will begin to develop a scientific study of Feeding Your Demons® (FYD). Lopön Chandra Easton is spearheading the formation of a team of researchers to do this important and long awaited study. The practice of meditation became a “household” practice once scientific research discovered it’s health benefits. With effective research on FYD, may it also become a practice that benefits people from all walks of life, all over the world. Stay tuned!

Other projects the 2017 Double Matching Campaign will help fund:

• New residential housing and improvements to existing housing.
• Two new solitary retreat cabins.
• Further water systems improvements including a reverse osmosis filtering system.
• A Feeding Your Demons® clinical trial.
• Construction of the Cremation Ground.
• Technology updates, including internet access projects.
• Phase one of “Upaya” Residence Hall which will include more single rooms, treatment rooms for massage and acupuncture, and residential apartments.

With 60% of our annual income coming from retreats and online programs, annual donations to Tara Mandala are the life-blood of the organization and directly support the daily dharma activity we so love and cherish.

Your generous contribution to this Double Match Campaign is what allows Tara Mandala to be a year-round retreat center, a repository for wisdom literature, a center for translation, a beacon for the feminine in Buddhism, and a refuge for deep practice and transformation.

Thank you for considering a gift at this time.

With Blessings,
The Tara Mandala Family
