During the past 2,500 years, support for the monastic life has been provided entirely by lay supporters through daily acts of generosity. In this spirit, support in the form of work, money, foodstuffs, building materials or other help is both appreciated and needed. Your generosity helps the spiritual community to survive and flourish. The steward of the monastery, Bodhisaddha Forest Monastery Property Limited, is a nonprofit organisation who manages all the donations on behalf of the resident monastics and for the development of the monastery. All donations goes solely towards the monks’ requisites and the building of the monastery.

There are two accounts that one may choose to donate to:

  1. General Expenses that are used for day-to-day running expenses of the monastery. This includes the monk’s travel and medical expenses, as well as the monastery’s maintenance expenses such as electricity, water, heating, etc. These donations are non tax-deductible.
  2. Building Fund which is used for the building of all the monastery buildings and infrastructure, such as meditation huts for the monks, meditation and eating hall. The development application as a Public Place of Worship has been approved by the local council in November 2016. Building aims to start during 2017. Donations to the building fund are tax-deductible.
