How Our Center Exists
For over 20 years, students have come through TCL's doors for instruction, meditation and friendship. We have maintained a continuous and active program filled with a variety of offerings, and we welcome new students every month. Although we are affiliated with the FPMT organization, we are still locally-supported. The center does not receive any funding from the International Office. Tse Chen Ling exists entirely through the kindness of our teachers, and the generosity of our students.
The Dharma Is Free, The Center Is Not.
We still depend largely on members who have pledged monthly contributions. See our page about the Membership Program.
The work of the center is done by volunteers. The board members and officers do not receive any payment. Check with one of the administrators about how you might be able to volunteer. We often need volunteers for special events.
Tse Chen Ling Buddhist Center is a tax-exempt religious non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
