Members support the training of Zen Center teachers and help to expand our dharma offerings. They play a vital role in the stewardship of three practice places and support important outreach programs.

Make a Donation

From special projects such as Digital Dharma to our Annual Fund, please give as generously as you can. Please also consider including San Francisco Zen Center in your will and estate plans.

Annual Fund: Support Zen Practice

The Zen Center Annual Fund supports our teachers, dharma offerings, and practice centers. The financial health and viability of Tassajara, City Center, and Green Gulch Farm are wholly dependent on the financial health of Zen Center.

Widening the Circle Capital Campaign

The San Francisco Zen Center community has launched a capital campaign to establish a strong and sustaining foundation so that we can continue to offer the world the benefits of Zen practice.

Learn more, give at the Capital Campaign website.
