Annual Membership Drive!


Our annual membership drive kicks off November 14th  and runs through December 19th! By  becoming a member or increasing your current level of support, help us to reach our goal to increase our membership revenue by $1000 per month.

For us at Brooklyn Zen Center, the opportunity to practice the dharma in community is the source of freedom and happiness from which all else emerges. Membership offers the opportunity to support the source first, thereby caring for all else that flows from it.

The monthly donations from our members cover half of all general operating costs. Through your sustained commitment, the Brooklyn Zen Center is able to provide ongoing resources, space, and time for this thriving Buddhist practice community.

As we join in celebrating our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY, we look to our community to light the path ahead.

As an expression of appreciation for those who have committed to supporting the community on an ongoing basis, we offer the following benefits to members:

  • Discounts and priority placement for retreats, workshops, events and classes (after 3 months)
  • Borrowing privileges at our library
  • The opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors and in other administrative roles
  • Regular updates on Brooklyn Zen Center’s finances as well as all board decisions
  • The knowledge that you are supporting a quiet, powerful force for compassion and peace in the world
