The KCC Leave a Legacy Circle is comprised of individuals who have named KCC as a beneficiary, in some form, in their will. We would appreciate your contacting us when it is appropriate for us to add your name to this group!
Perhaps you have something like furniture, tools, building materials or appliances that are in good condition, but that you no longer use or want. KCC may need such items and you may be eligible for a tax deduction if you donate them to KCC. This is known as "an in-kind donation".
If you are considering an in-kind donation, please email (donate at kcc.org) to discuss KCC's needs and the articles you wish to donate.
As you know, KCC is a Vajrayana Buddhist center, founded by the Venerable Kalu Rinpoche, where the Karma and Shangpa lineages are taught, practiced and supported. Our function as an institution is to support practitioners at every stage on the path to spiritual awakening. The emphasis in our training is on the cultivation of insight and compassion in both formal practice and in daily life. Your generous bequest will significantly enable this mission.
