Matching Pledge Challenge in Honor of RigDzin Dharma's 10 Year Anniversary
RigDzin Dharma celebrated 10 years in Albuquerque on October 31!
In an expression of gratitude for the Center's efforts over the years to bring authentic Tibetan Buddhist masters to Albuquerque and to offer a place of peace and solace to all in our community, anonymous sangha members have come forward with a generous pledge to donate up to $2,000 in matching funds toward any donation to RigDzin received by December 31, 2015. What that means is that every dollar you donate to RigDzin from now until the end of the year will be matched with an additional dollar.
RigDzin Dharma Foundation is a grassroots effort sustained entirely through the generosity of sangha members. Please consider taking advantage of this match challenge to ensure our Center will continue for another 10 years!
Because your donations are matched dollar for dollar up to $2,000, even a small donation makes a big difference!
Please consider donating to RigDzin Dharma Foundation in honor of our 10-year anniversary!
RigDzin Dharma Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, so remember your donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. Please consider us in your year end contributions.
