BOTP Pledge Drive


Please note: Our pledge drive is currently on hold while Carla is on a health sabbatical through May 2018.











Before giving, the mind of the giver is happy.
While giving, the mind of the giver is made peaceful.
After having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted.

Dear Sangha Members,

The practice of generosity is a foundation of our Buddhist practice. We volunteer and we pledge because our hearts are full of gratitude for the wisdom of the Dharma and for the dedication of our teacher. Bloom of the Present relies entirely on your donations to bring the Buddha’s teachings to our community, to support our full time Guiding Teacher, Carla Brennan, and to pay for the ongoing expenses of the sangha.

Monthly pledges provide Bloom of the Present with a solid financial foundation. To those who have contributed through the years – thank you for your continued support. We encourage all our members to give what your circumstance allows. Every donation – big or small – inspires us to continue our important work and is a blessing that contributes to the awakening of all beings everywhere.

With deep gratitude,
The Guiding Circle
