Dana – offer support to Zenways

Lotus flower

Support Zenways now and in the future through a variety of giving options.


The basis of practice is mutual support. You support the Dharma and you receive the support that can allow your practice to flourish.

Rather than making membership a commercial transaction, Zenways relies on the generosity of people like you who feel that this practice is an important part of their lives and who choose to express that feeling by contributing to our community’s development and strength. The Buddha said when gathering support members of the community should be like bees moving from flower to flower, not impacting too greatly on any individual flower.

When a virtuous person gives to a virtuous person with a trusting heart a gift righteously obtained, placing faith that the fruit of action is great, that gift, I say, will come to full fruition.
Shakyamuni Buddha


Leave a legacy that will help sustain and continue Dharma teachings and practice for the benefit of generations to come.

Legacy gifts benefit both the donor and Zenways. The advantages to the donor are many—tax benefits, recognition and the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to ensure our commitment to uphold the lineage of Daizan Roshi. Such gifts to Zenways benefit our community by providing a reliable and steady flow of income, allowing us in turn, to make solid investments in our programming and practice centres for years to come.

Legacy giving is a term that covers all kinds of structured or deferred charitable gifts such as bequests (gifts from a person’s will), trusts and gifts of retirement benefits. These gifts benefit both Zenways and you, while creating a legacy that will last for generations.


By including Zenways in your will, you can ensure that your generosity will continue in perpetuity. Zenways promises to put your gift to the best possible use, in fulfilling our mission to make accessible and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha, as determined by Zenways’ spiritual leadership.
