Why should I become a regular donor of Columbus KTC?

The practice of generosity, the first of the six perfections, or paramitas, is to give what is helpful and good and to give without selfishness.  

Your regular donation helps fund programs so that Columbus KTC can continue to provide a respectful and open community for all levels of practitioners to study and practice Karma Kagyu Buddhism.  By providing a home for dharma in Central Ohio, regular donors accumulate the great merit of helping connect people to teachings that can transform their lives.  

Regular donations also can help us rebuild our temple.  Our founder and spiritual guide Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche gave us our charge on that very first Sunday, the day of the fire that burnt our building: “Do not be sad. Rebuild.”  Your monthly donations will also help us prove to the banks that we can afford to pay for our new home.

Columbus KTC is a 501(c)3 organization, your donations are tax deductible.
