“Generosity is the virtue that produces peace”

Thank you for considering a donation to the Vancouver Shambhala Centre. We are a group of volunteers committed to making meditation and the buddhadharma accessible to Vancouverites.

We can accept donations in person, by Interac e-transfer, by PayPal, or by paper cheque.

We can issue Canadian tax receipts for donations of $20 or more. To issue a tax receipt, we need your name and mailing address (for the Canada Revenue Agency), and your email address to send tax receipts in February.


There are several ways to donate:

In person at the Vancouver Shambhala Centre
We accept cash, cheques, credit and debit cards.

Interac e-transfer
Please send your e-transfer donation to [email protected].  Please include your email address. For most e-transfers, you won’t need a security question, but if you do, our preferred answer is “Vancouver”

Paper cheque
Please make your cheque out to “Vancouver Shambhala Centre”, and drop it off when you vist the Shambhala Centre, or mail it to us at:
Vancouver Shambhala Centre
256 West 7th Avenue, Unit 208
Vancouver, BC  V5Y 1M1
Please ensure that we have your email address for the tax receipt.

We are working on PayPal for donations, but it’s not quite ready yet. However, PayPal charges us 2.9% of each donation for processing, so you might want to consider another option.

Monthly donations
If you would like to support us by making a monthly donation through pre-authorized debit, please email us at [email protected]

Stock donations
Canadian tax law allows donations of stocks, which gives you a tax receipt for the full current value of the stock, and an exemption from capital gains tax.  To set this up, please email us at [email protected]

We would greatly appreciate your donation of time and energy as a volunteer!  Please email us at [email protected] and let us know your how you are interested in helping out.
