Support NEW HOME FUND

We need your help!

Only with collective vows and actions can we build a Bodhi home for all. Every brick and every tile at our new home will reflect the great collective compassion. Your support will strengthen DDMBA-Chicago’s ability to spread the Dharma, and plant a seed of wisdom, compassion and merits for you, your family and your friends. Your generosity will create positive causes and conditions, lighting the lamp of wisdom for many generations to come.


Great News!

DONATION MATCHING

two donors and long-time supporters (a husband and wife couple) have committed to a $1 for $1 match, up to $300,000, for any new donations to our New Home Fund received from January 1, 2016 onwards!

A few words from these generous donors:
“We only have one wish, which is that the DDM New Home can be built soon. We believe that, the true purpose of realizing DDMBA-Chicago’s New Home Vow is to let more people participate in this matter, have an opportunity to give and to contribute, have the chance to get to know, to learn Buddha Dharma, and finally to walk the Buddha Path. We hope that our Matching Gift can serve this function.”

Please consider supporting our New Home Fund this year if you haven’t so far, or continuing to support it if you have already.
With each $1 contributed doubled to $2 through the matching gift, we can surely accelerate the realization of the vision, together with all of you!
