"Dana consists... in the feeling of wanting to give, of wanting toshare what you have with others" —Sangharakshita

Our community is based on dana, the Sanskrit term for generosity – people giving their time and energy to create something together.

We charge minimal amounts for our Dharma activities and aim to offer them open-handedly. We’re able to do this because so many people generously give money and time to establish and maintain everything we enjoy at the Sydney Buddhist Centre. If you would like to provide support the best way to help is by giving regularly by direct debit. 

Make A Donation

Donations to the Sydney Buddhist Centre are very gratefully accepted. This helps us as a community to continue to offer our ongoing activities, including meditation instruction and encouragement to lead a creative and ethical life.

Donations are tax-deductable. A summary of your donations will be emailed to you at the end of the financial year.

Other Ways To Give


 There are many ways of practicing generosity and we encourage you to give in ways appropriate to your circumstances and supportive of your growth and development. The practice of generosity frees us, so we encourage giving with a sense of lightness, connectedness and ease.
