Yokoji-Zen Mountain Center

Make a Pledge

One of the ways you can best support Yokoji is with a pledge.

By giving extra money on top of basic membership you can personally ensure the continuation of the dharma at Yokoji. The overheads for running this Training Center are around $200,000 a year, and with a small residential community and staff, we can only generate so much income from our operating activities.

Membership and pledges are our most stable forms of income. To step up and pledge to be either a Friend of Yokoji or a Temple Guardian is a precious gift. If Yokoji has a place in your heart and in your life, please practice dana paramita, or perfection of giving, and make a pledge.
