Donate with PayPal

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. When making an Interac e-Transfer, please send the Treasurer an email ( with the the password hint that you have used when sending the transfer.

Monthly Donations

The easiest way is to make direct deposits from your account to Tisarana’s 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 set up 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 setup 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:
