Make a Donation



If beings knew as I know the benefit of generosity, they would not let an opportunity go by without sharing.
—The Buddha

The SIMS Board is excited about this incredible opportunity for SIMS and we hope that you will support making our new home a warm, welcoming dharma center. Read more about our new Dharma Center.


How to Offer Dana

Online. The links at the left are an opportunity for one-time or recurring donations through PayPal. For a one-time donation, you may use either your PayPal account or your credit card. A recurring monthly donation will require that a PayPal account be used to manage the subscription—a process that is quick, easy, and secure. You may also make a donation through Network for Good.

By check. You can also mail a check payable to Seattle Insight Meditation Society (SIMS) to:

PO Box 95817
Seattle, WA   98145-2817

Please note in the memo field if you wish your gift to go to teacher dana. If there is no designation, it will go to SIMS.

In person. To make an additional donation beyond the suggested donation at any SIMS-sponsored event, you are invited to place money or a check in either the SIMS or teacher dana baskets.

Company gift matching. If your employer has offered to match your donation to SIMS, please fill out and mail your company's matching form to the above address, or drop it in the SIMS dana basket at a SIMS-sponsored event.

Annual donation. If you would like to make a larger annual donation to SIMS or for teacher dana instead of weekly donations, please fill out the SIMS Donation Form and either mail it to SIMS at the address above or leave it in the Tuesday-night SIMS dana basket.

The Seattle Insight Meditation Society is a 501c(3) organization and your donation is fully tax-deductible. Tax ID: 91-1919405. Please note that any contributions restricted for the benefit of any specific teacher or individual are not tax-deductible.
