Welcome

Dollar-matched Donations

Dear friends,

We are thrilled to share some wonderful news – a generous member of our sangha has again this year graciously offered to dollar-match any donations made to the MBC before June 30th, up to a cap of $10,000. This incredible initiative not only doubles the impact of your support, but also presents a tremendous opportunity for our centre, by giving us the potential to reduce our mortgage by $20,000 if we can reach the limit. Join us in expressing our deepest gratitude to this compassionate donor and seize this chance to make a lasting difference in the sustainability of the Melbourne Buddhist Centre. If you would like to make a donation, we would love to hear from you. Our bank details can be found on our website at the link below – please reference ‘dollar-matching‘.

With metta,
