Center Refresh Campaign

This spring we embarked on a REFRESH CAMPAIGN to make our old space new, comfortable, and inviting… but we aren’t done yet! We need your help to make our remaining wishes for the center uplift to come true. Please DONATE–buy a gondem or zafu, materials to rebuild the shrines, LED lighting, banners, audio-visual improvements, and/or dishwasher. Be a part of the refresh movement, just click the link below!

WISH:  GOMDENS, ZAFUS, ZABUTONS  ($4,000)

The new cushions have brought vibrancy to the Shambhala Hall, but we still need to replace and recover many older cushions in the Main Shrine Room and Dragon Room! Help us replace our most important seating, one cushion at a time.

 

shrine

WISH: MILLWORK ($3,000 with professional donated labor!)

With donated professional labor, we will construct a new teaching throne and shrine boxes. The community room furniture will also be upgraded and expanded to support more conversation and celebration in our renewed and redesigned space.

 

lighting

WISH: GOODBYE CFL LIGHTING FIXTURES, HELLO LEDs ($2,000)

We will save money over the next five years by replacing many of the existing lighting fixtures and investing in long-lasting LEDs. Improve our vision and save operating costs for $40 per fixture!

 

flag

WISH: BANNERS, CALLIGRAPHIES & LINEAGE PHOTOGRAPHS ($1,500)

Some of our banners are decades old… and showing it. Help us replace the frayed ones and reframe our precious photos and calligraphies with archival quality mounting and UV protection glass.

 

mic

WISH: AUDIO/VISUAL EQUIPMENT ($3,000)

Upgrades include new handheld mics, lapel mics for teachers, improved sound in the Shambhala Hall, wireless hearing assistance, and an improved presentation screen for viewing on-line presentations. This is also an accessibility item for those who need assistance hearing.

 

dishwasher

WISH: DISHWASHER ($1,000)

Hand-washing dishes (although delightful and character building) is both time consuming for volunteers and staff and less efficient in terms of water consumption.
