Buddhism has a long tradition of Dana (donations) to support Dharma teaching and practice, see: About dana – generosity – Gaia House

Sheffield Insight Meditation relies on generosity to cover the cost of running events (room hire, teachers’ travel & accommodation etc) and overheads (insurance, admin, website, Zoom etc).

Retreat fees and other donations (for sitting groups, Sangha Saturdays etc) help cover these.

Sheffield Insight Meditation offers retreats on a sliding scale with Freely Given tickets for anyone with limited means to pay. (Retreat fees are treated donations by HMRC because we always offer free tickets.) Sitting groups and Sangha Saturdays similarly rely on donations.
