Support Sakyadhita Hawai'i

La'i Peace Center is supported by voluntary contributions and occasional program fees. Funding to construct the meditation hall and retreat huts is still needed. Eventually programs will be supported by agricultural development and the sale of organic produce. The Center’s first income generating project was a CD produced by Sakyadhita Hawai'i in 1994, titled “His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Hawai'i.”

Sakyadhita Hawai'i is a charitable organization registered in the State of Hawai’i (EIN: 91-1934279). All donations are tax deductible. Sakyadhita Hawai'i supports a number of outreach programs in developing countries. In 1994, the organization donated $11,000 to sponsor scholarships for needy children and Buddhist nuns in India.
