New Shambhala Trust Grants
Karme Choling Web Casting Upgrade

Karme Choling Web Casting Upgrade

In thriving Durham, North Carolina, the Shambhala Center is purchasing the building that it has rented for 10 years. At vibrant Karme Choling, the teachings that resonate from its glorious shrine room can now be webcast across the mandala. And in a humming virtual space linked to the Shambhala website, a community forum and other social networking tools will soon enrich our online experience. Each of these projects broadens access to the Shambhala teachings and deepens the practice and study of Shambhala students. And each has received a grant from the Shambhala Trust.

The Trust is a group of donors who explore the practice of generosity as path. In meetings twice a year, Trust members review proposal requests from across the mandala and rouse group wisdom and compassion to inspire giving. Since 1995 the Trust has contributed more than $2.5 million in grants to nearly 100 projects.

The Trust invites all who can extend their generosity beyond their local and international Shambhala commitments to join us in the joyful practice of generosity.

There are several ways to participate: as a full member, as an associate member, or as a spontaneously inspired guest. Full members donate their time and money, attending the meetings, reviewing the proposals, and working with applicants throughout the life of a project. Associate members are invited to review proposals and attend meetings as they have time; they are asked to contribute $2,000 annually. Spontaneous acts of generosity are possible on the Shambhala Trust website, where anyone can contribute to projects that are being funded by the Trust:
