BECOMING A MEMBER

Friends of Milarepa Membership Program
Milarepa Center provides a special place for your spiritual development and practice. Annual or monthly giving options generate a steady stream of support for the Center to flourish.  By becoming a Friend of Milarepa through our membership program, you can provide the consistent resources needed to keep the Center functioning.

When you become a Friend of Milarepa, you help provide a dependable income to cover our core operating expenses, such as facility maintenance, general course and retreat provisions, public liability and other insurances, offerings to teachers, staff stipends and taxes, utility costs, and other general expenses.

Becoming a Friend of Milarepa is different than offering suggested donations for courses and retreats, registration fees, and fundraising donations, as it gives Milarepa Center consistent revenue to host an active, inspirational program of events. It is these programs that will guide us to developing a most beneficial retreat center and a place of refuge for all. Please help up realize these dreams by becoming a Friend of Milarepa today!
