Financial donations to the Asheville Shambhala Center go toward paying for operating expenses and community offerings – furthering the Shambhala vision for creating a good human society and the principles of meditation and the basic goodness of ourselves and others.  The Center is an all volunteer organization with no paid employees. Everyone who “works” at the Center contributes their time and energy. The Center depends on your financial generosity for its presence in Asheville.

The Center gratefully accepts any donation, large or small. The Center is tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and donations are tax-deductible.
