Donations are used for the requisites of the resident ordained sangha, special events, expenses incurred while hosting monastics, monthly utilities, maintenance, and generally keeping the monastery operational. There are several ways of offering support. Here are four common approaches:
Donate with PayPal
If you have a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account, you can make a one-time donation to the monastery by clicking on the Donate button (below).
Donate by Email (Interac e-Transfer)
The Monastery can now accept donations via Interac e-Transfer. Please note this option is only available if you are sending money from a Canadian bank account. Interac e-Transfers can be sent to this email id – tbmtreasurer.tisarana@gmail.
Direct deposits can be made from your account to Tisarana’s account using EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer). This is a direct withdrawal from your bank account into the Monastery bank account. A file is sent to the bank each month with a list of donors and your specified amount and the day of the month to transfer the donation. The setup and change or cancellation of this type of donation can be accomplished simply by sending an email to the Treasurer. If you would like to set up EFT, please email the Treasurer for the form and further instructions.
You can also send a series of post-dated cheques, or an occasional donation by cheque. Please mail to:
