Memorial and Named Gifts

Make a donation to honor or memorialize a family member or friend. In addition to a letter acknowledging your donation, we will inform the designated honoree that you have made a gift in his or her name.

Matching Gifts

Ask your company if they have an employee matching gifts program, and make your donation go twice as far with a matching gift to SFZC. Your donation will be matched by San Francisco Zen Center's charitable organization, The Zen Foundation (EIN 26-1333960).

Fiscal Sponsorships

San Francisco Zen Center occasionally offers fiscal sponsorship to programs or events aligned with our mission "to embody, express and make accessible the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha."
