Memorials and Honoraria

Looking for a new way to remember someone special or celebrate a milestone or event? Kadampa Center offers an easy way to make gifts to the Center in honor or in memory of someone.

Here are some examples:

  1. Your family and friends can be invited to contribute to the Center in your name in lieu of birthday or Christmas presents.
  2. Honor a special anniversary date in memory of a loved one who has passed.
  3. Give on behalf of someone who is having a difficult time.

There are many creative ways to make meaningful use of this mode of giving.
If you choose to give in memory or honor of someone, the Center will send a special notification card, designed by Jampel (Jhaula Lama), our stupa artist, to the person you select.

Recognizing a loved one is a great way to help keep our Center vibrant, add meaning to personal celebrations and to honor and remember those you care about.
For requesting donations in lieu of gifts for your own special occasions, here is some sample text to get you started:
