The Rime Buddhist Center strives be inclusive and to make visiting teacher events available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. However, we have received feedback that even our “suggested fee” method is a barrier for some, making them likely to skip teachings or to experience negative feelings when paying less than the suggested amount. We want to change that. To this end, the Rime Center is trying a radical new approach – sponsorship.
In the coming months, we will be looking for sponsors to help us raise $2000 for each visiting teacher event. This amount would cover the teacher’s stipend, as well as, travel and food costs. To become a sponsor and help us meet our goal, donations can be made on the registration page when registering for an event. Please consider becoming an event sponsor in 2019, and help make these valuable teachings available to everyone.
