Support Heartwood Refuge with your donation today!
General Fund: With the limited budget of a dharma center, emerging learning academy, and monastery, unique and unexpected expenses always seem to make their way known. This fund is used for all expenses that are not associated with special-purpose funds. The activities being paid for through the general fund constitute the core administrative and operational tasks. By donating to this fund you are giving us permission to use the funds as we see fit. If you feel inspired by Heartwood Refuge but not sure where to point your generosity, this is a good place to cultivate it.
Nuns Fund: Nuns at Heartwood Refuge offer teaching, service, inspiration, and serve as role models for how we can make life truly meaningful. True Dharma friends, they are dependent upon the lay sangha for food, clothing, medicine and shelter.
It is right that nuns should be such holders of the container for practice at Heartwood Refuge. Our Co-Abbot Venerable Pannavati, continues the ordination lineage of her (deceased) Master Thich Tu An Nu (Karuna Dharma), the first American woman to become a fully ordained monastic. Venerable has been integral in the re-emergence of the female monk lineage with a history of ordaining contemporary bhikkhunis and providing space for them to both practice the Dharma and assume spiritual leadership roles. Your support will allow this first community of multi-lineage nuns to flourish as we represent and coalesce Theravada, Mahayana, and Vajrayana traditions.
Correct Cultivation Learning Academy Fund: Correct Cultivation Learning from Buddha Academy is being developed to share the transformational teachings and methods of authentic Buddhadharma. Please donate to help establish this special academy to grow and take root.
