#GivingTuesday kicks off the holiday-giving season, inspiring people to collaborate in improving their local communities and give back in impactful ways to charities and causes they support. It’s a day when you can make a tremendous contribution to help Kadampa Meditation Center Philadelphia and its branches continue to spread happiness throughout the greater Philadelphia region.

Over the years, KMC Philadelphia has grown from a small center to Philadelphia’s premier meditation center. As a result, our need for an updated space has grown. We are finishing raising money to revamp our kitchen area. This area is a favorite gathering place for both new students and long-term practicing students. This new furniture will further enrich the warm atmosphere of our center and make our center more inviting for everyone, from all walks of life. Renovating the kitchen space will also help us increase the seating capacity for our special courses where attendance can be substantial for just the main meditation room.

Why Are We Doing This? The motivation for this is to create a space that is designed to bring out Dharma relationships, to allow for comfortable class discussions, and to invite people to form friendships. These are at the heart of supporting a spiritual practice.

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $3000.
