“And what is the treasure of generosity?
There is the case of a disciple of the noble ones, his awareness cleansed of the stain of stinginess, living at home, freely generous, openhanded,
delighting in being magnanimous, responsive to requests, delighting in the distribution of alms.
This is called the treasure of generosity.”
AN 7.6

Where It’s Most Needed

In the Theravāda Buddhist tradition there exists a lovely, deeply rooted interdependence—built on respect for practice and generosity—between the monastics and the lay community.  Your open-hearted support allows monks the opportunity to devote their lives to meditation and right practice (sammā-paṭipadā) in a forest refuge while we in the lay community benefit from their teachings.  Here you may give, or participate in the practice of dāna as it is called in the Pali language, to support the monastics’ noble efforts. Any and all support offered—whether time, work, materials, or practice—is deeply appreciated and kammically wholesome. Sadhu!
