VolunteeringWe rely on the generosity of donors – without you, we would not be here! Our needs every year are always greater than our income, and there is always more to do or holy objects to build and maintain.
In addition to donating money to our Centre general fund, student scholarships, Puja sponsorship, or Prayer Wheel Special Project, you can donate your time or donestic items. Visit our Volunteer page to learn more about the benefits of giving your time. Scroll below to view our domestic items wish list.
We are so grateful for each donation, because every one makes a difference. By donating to Mahamudra Centre, you are helping provide the opportunity to for anyone to come do retreat, study Dharma, and to support our outreach in the local area.
You can help Mahamudra Centre create positive change in the world, one person at a time.
How to Donate
Donations can be made online on our Give A Little Page. Please note the Give A Little website now charges a 5% processing fee, so please consider adding that fee to your payment so it isn’t deducted from your donation to the Centre.

This enormous prayer wheel (10′ x 7′) is being built at the request of Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche, the spiritual director of Mahamudra Centre and the FPMT.
It will be filled with millions of mantras and other precious texts and its purpose is to bring harmony and peace to the centre, our communities and to the world.
These prayer wheels are so needed in the world right now! If you’d like to join us in bringing this one into the world we’d love to hear from you.
The prayer wheel will be completed in 3 stages:
- Stage 1: Construction and decoration including partial gold plating of the prayer wheel
- Stage 2: Construction of the prayer wheel house
- Stage 3: Filling and consecration of the prayer wheel
Stage 1 is almost complete and the prayer wheel mantras and decorations are currently being gold plated.
We need to fundraise $25,000 to complete it.
Below is our wish list: items that we need in order to continue to provide a peaceful, inspiring place for people to visit. If you have something to offer that isn’t on our list, we might still need it – please contact us with your kind ideas. We also have special projects that need sponsors and in-kind donations.
Offer Flowers to the Stupa
We’re in the process of adding more flowers to the gardens around the stupa, and would like it to be blooming year-round. You can read a short article in Mandala Magazine about the ten benefits of offering flowers for inspiration!
