We rely on the generosity of those who appreciate our work in Brighton and would like to feel they have a part to play. Much of the work in keeping the Centre running is done by volunteers from our community, our meditation and Dharma teachers provide their services free of charge and our paid workers only take what is needed to live simply. Our meditation and Buddhism classes and courses are priced to make them as accessible as possible. We never turn someone away for reasons of hardship.
Please consider making a donation to the Centre when you visit or you can donate to us on-line.
Regular giving through standing order
This is the most effective way to support us. A small regular payment can translate into a significant benefit to us over time. You can download a standing order form here.
If you are a tax payer we are able to claim back some of the tax you pay, thus increasing the value of your donation by at least 25%. This is possible because the Brighton Buddhist Centre is a registered charity under the name Triratna Buddhist Community (Brighton), Registered Charity No: 273682. You can download a Gift Aid form here.
Legacies have enabled the Brighton Buddhist Centre to make some very significant developments, among them the lift that gives disabled access to the building and the triptych painting by Aloka that adorns our top shrine room. Whether your bequest is small or large it is a valuable way of supporting our work far into the future. And, since charitable legacies are paid before inheritance tax is deducted, this can reduce the total amount of tax due on your estate.
