Supporting Each Other

Although the Centre strives to keep prices as low as possible, the financial cost of participating in a retreat can still be a barrier to some.

In order to have a way to support each other, the Sangha Support fund was created and has benefited many over the years. This special fund exists thanks to the generosity of our community.  Sangha is a Buddhist term for spiritual community, and many from our spiritual community have donated what they can to this fund.

The Sangha Support fund can assist those who would otherwise be unable to attend a Wangapeka retreat by granting up to 50% of the accommodation fees, up to a total of $300 per person per year.

If you have experienced the value of the Wangapeka Centre and have the means to assist others to do the same, please consider becoming part of this beautiful flow of support. Every donation, of every size, is welcomed and appreciated. The account for these donations is: Wangapeka Educational Trust 03 0703 0156597 03. Please use ‘Sangha Support’ as reference.

If you are finding you cannot afford to attend a Wangapeka retreat that may be of benefit, please know this fund is here for you and you are welcome to apply for assistance.
