ASZC Gassho

STO and ASZC announce a joint fund-raising Initiative to address a shortfall of income at the ASZC brought about by a down-turn in the number of residents at the Center since January 1, 2018.


This is a direct funding campaign target of $5,000 by December 31, 2018, to support the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and the STO training program.

As of 10/10/18 we are almost half-way to our goal of raising $5000 for the Atlanta Soto Zen Center. Remember these dollars are to support the training role of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center. You assistance is vital as we have only two months left in this campaign (December 31, 2018)  


This goal breaks down to $1,166.67 per month. We simply ask that everyone consider a special donation and ask friends to do the same.  

Click here  to use your PayPal account or credit card. You can also visit the ASZC website  to donate and review the practice schedule. Please include the special instruction "For the ASZC Training Fund" so we can apply your gift to our campaign.  If sending checks, please indicate in the note: For the ASZC Training Fund. Checks can be sent to: Atlanta Soto Zen Center, P.O. Box 133241, Atlanta, GA 30333-3241

Please note if an initial donation has been made by an Affiliate Sangha. We also ask that Practice Leaders of the 22 Affiliate Sanghas consider sending a donation from their sangha. This short-term campaign progress graphic will be posted on the STO and ASZC websites (this can also be posted on an Affiliate Sangha website if you wish) as a reminder of sangha generosity.
