Generosity Policy

“Generosity is the virtue that produces peace.”

            ―from the Sutra of the Recollection of the Three Jewels

The Birmingham Shambhala Center is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers and supported by the generosity of its members and program participants.

It is our commitment that everyone, regardless of financial resources, feels welcome at all our programs and events.

  • If the cost for a program presents an obstacle to your participation, please use the “Pay what you can” option for registering, filling in the box with the price you are paying.  You can pay online with PayPal or a credit/debit card, or pay the amount at the door.
  • If you need to arrange a payment plan,  please make arrangements prior to the program by contacting Nick Buckner at [email protected]
  • For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.

Generosity is what enables our center to share these teachings with others, so please offer the most you can afford.  This helps ensure the continuity of our programs and sustainability of our Center.
