Sangha Friends & Projects

How you can help the BRC  flourish?

There are many ways of showing your goodwill and generosity towards the BRC. But if you cannot think of any particular helpful gesture, why not make a Bequest, become a Donor, Sangha Friend or Paid-up Yogi? You will enjoy several advantages:

As a special gesture of gratitude to Sangha Friends, Paid-up Yogis and Monthly Donors we will e-mail them an advance copy of our programme schedule as soon as it is ready – before the new brochure is printed and posted to everyone else. This gives them a chance to book for the most heavily-booked retreats at the earliest opportunity - before they are more widely circulated.

Make a Bequest

One of the most effective long-term ways of supporting the BRC is to leave a bequest in your Will to the Buddhist Trust of South Africa – which is the ultimate entity that provides continuity and direction to the Buddhist Retreat Centre.  The Trust is managed by people of professional standing and proven integrity and adherence to Buddhist ethical principles.  Contact the BRC for details

Be a Monthly Donor

A Monthly Donor arranges with his/her bank to automatically transfer a regular monthly sum, however small, into the BRC Sangha Projects account.  Just imagine: if only one in every 100 people on our mailing list donated R 50 per month, it would mean an additional income for the BRC of R 24 000 per year.  Imagine further what difference this would make to the Centre’s welfare and longevity.
