SSIMC continues a 2600-year-old tradition of offering the Buddha’s teachings to all who are interested. Dana is giving and no one is turned away who cannot afford the suggested amounts for programs.

We have no paid administrative staff. SSIMC teachers and dedicated volunteers cover all administration. Donations received for programs cover a small percentage (~20%) of the center's modest physical expenses (rent, utilities, etc.)

Our financial support comes from the generosity of people who value what we offer. Kind-hearted individuals who live near and far donate to SSIMC. We operate with minimal overhead so we can continue to practice the Dhamma together.

We are grateful for the support we receive.
