IMC Charlotte relies solely on Dana (donations) in order to offer the teachings of the Buddha to those who are seeking them. At this unprecedented time, your Dana (donation of time, money and well-wishing) ensures that IMCC can remain a vital source of the early teachings of the Buddha.
Dana is the Pali word for generosity. The practice of insight meditation is based on the 2,600-year-old teachings of the Buddha. Consistent with this tradition, the teachings are offered freely, trusting that those who find them useful will support the effort to share them. The practice of generosity is also one of the foundations of a personal spiritual journey.
IMC Charlotte relies on Dana to fund its operating expenses. While some of the organization’s offerings (classes, series, retreats, etc.) do have suggested registration fees to cover the cost of rent, advertising, promotional materials, etc., no one is turned away from any activity due to lack of ability to pay.
Donations are also used to pay for our weekly meeting space, purchase supplies and equipment (ex: cushions), bring in speakers, provide modest support for the organization’s Dharma Leaders (teachers), and provide scholarships to events.
You can make a donation to IMCC by mailing a check made out to “IMC Charlotte” to:
3900 D Park Road
Charlotte, NC 28209
