How your donations help
The Abhayaratna Trust enables the Triratna Buddhist Order to take care of one another in times of financial hardship. Financial support can be vital when no longer able to work or support yourself, for example through illness, redundancy or retirement without a pension.
We offer a trusted way to give to those in genuine need of support and where state and other help is not available. The grants we make are practical, immediate and beneficial to Dharma practice. Supporting the Trust also resources us to offer non-financial support in times of health and housing difficulties.
What you give to us, we give to 120 to 150 Triratna Buddhist Order members each year. So they can, for example:
attend retreats and solitary retreats
be at Triratna Order gatherings
pay for urgent living costs such as utility bills
cover relocation costs when retiring from Triratna institutions
travel to Adhisthana and other retreat centres
access money quickly in an emergency
basically furnish sheltered and other housing
pay for vital medical care or equipment
All that we do is made possible through the generosity of individuals in the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community
We use donations and legacies wisely. The Abhayaratna trustees make well informed grant decisions, based on the individual’s financial situation and the availability of other help, such as state and family support.
