How Our Center Exists
After 10 years as a “virtual” center, our dream of a home came true in 2007. Our program is growing, and we are welcoming new students every week. Although we are affiliated with the FPMT organization, we are still locally-supported. The center does not receive any funding from the International Office. GGBC exists entirely through the kindness of our teachers, and the generosity of our students.
The Dharma Is Free, The Center Is Not.
We still depend largely on members who have pledged monthly contributions. See our page about the Membership Program.
The work of the center is done by volunteers. The board members and officers do not receive any payment. Check with one of the administrators about how you might be able to volunteer. We often need volunteers for special events.
From time to time our center has a need for specific items. You have the opportunity to sponsor an item on our wish list.
