First, you can make a one time or recurrent donation. We recommend a monthly recurrent donation of $10 or more.
If everyone on our Dhammadharini mailing list made a monthly recurrent donation of $10, the expenses for the vihara would be completely covered!
And, we of the Dhammadharini Support Foundation would feel comfortable and confident to go ahead in purchasing a permanent vihara/monastery for our monastics, and for us to benefit from their presence.
The easiest way to make a recurrent monthly donation is online using our bank card. Info is here below. Of course, it's also possible to mail a check or visit the vihara or hermitage each month. Here's how you make a monthly recurrent donation online:

Online donations through Network for Good can be made onetime or can be recurrent, of the amount you choose. Recurrent donations (even small) provide a steady base of support for the development of monastic community. Note: Network for Good donations can only be made by USA residents.
Be sure to write that your donation is for "vihara lodgings" or "vihara lodgings-recurrent" if you're making a monthly gift.
Also, with either PayPal or Network for Good, you can make a dedication when you make your donation, such as for a dear departed loved one, or any other dedication you wish.
Last, please send a brief note to dhammadharini@gmail Att: Maryann to let us know that you are joining our "Dana Devas" by making a recurrent donation of [such and such amount] for vihara lodgings.
Thank you for your support of our Sangha!
May your generosity bring you joy.
Here s/he rejoices, there s/he rejoices --
the doer of beneficent deeds rejoices in both places,
finding joy, inspiration and great gladness
in seeing the fulfillment of their pure intentions and deeds.
-- the Buddha, Dhammapada 16
