Summer/Fall 2022 Fundraiser

Dear Sangha Members,

We are excited to provide an update on the progress of our move to Old City and announce the kick-off of our Summer/Fall 2022 Fundraiser! We've been running classes in the new space for about two weeks now - your generous donations make it possible to outfit the space for optimal meditation and community events!


Our goal is to raise $20,000 as we transform a former retail space into a peaceful, modern Kadampa Meditation Center. We are making the following improvements:

-       A beautiful new shrine and modern Buddhist art

-       Refurnished meditation room with new paint and carpeting

-       New chairs and meditation cushions

-       Unintrusive audiovisual equipment to continue providing high-quality hybrid classes

-       A modern bookstore with attractive offerings

-       A comfortable lounge area to facilitate social time after classes


As you know, Kadampa Meditation Center Philadelphia is a nonprofit organization that is financed entirely by its members and supporters, and wholly run by volunteers. We are so grateful for your generous giving to support this move and transition; we appreciate any financial support you can give, large or small. It is because of you that we can share Venerable Geshe-la’s special presentation of Buddha's teachings for the modern world and be a beacon of peace in Philadelphia. May everyone find ultimate peace and happiness.  


With love & gratitude,

Gen Chogyop, Resident Teacher 

Eve Miller, Education Program Coordinator 

Sarah Frew, Administrative Director 


Kadampa Meditation Center Philadelphia is a 501(c)3

volunteer-led nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
