Your kind donations & volunteer support sustain our work!
Sunray Meditation Society and the Sunray Peace Village deeply appreciate your support.
Generosity means giving, and it begins in the heart, by affirming confidence in the abundance of the universe.
Abundance flows in a circle, like the breath. Breathe in, breathe out.

Tax (U.S.) receipts are issued to donors at the end of the year.
This fund is the foundation for all that we do, supporting the everyday operation activities of both our organizations. It funds all the nitty-gritties like: minister’s support, insurances, communication technology, program development, propane and electric, seasonal maintenance and repairs, etc. Our combined organizational operating expenses average $7000/month.
Your gifts cover the difference between our income from various program fees, and the actual cost of running our two organizations! Help keep the lights on and the Teachings flowing by making a General Fund donation. Your General Fund gift is used where it is most needed.
