Donating to the Florida Community of Mindfulness
The Buddha always taught about generosity. Being generous takes us out of narrow, fearful places of scarcity and returns us to the spaciousness of connection and concern about others, into “we-ness” rather than “me-ness.” Being generous returns us to our deepest values, to our qualities of love, commitment, compassion, and caring, and thus cultivates an internal sense of abundance, the conviction that we have enough to share.
All donations to the Florida Community of Mindfulness (FCM) are fully tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. FCM is registered as a tax exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit religious organization with the State of Florida.
Your donations allow FCM to offer teachings and programs that foster healing, transformation and awakening for all who come to our Community for practice.
