2018 Annual Appeal

Donations for Sesshin
You may also donate any amount you are able for attending Sesshin via the PayPal button above.
Payment is not required to attend Sesshin.
We suggest a $40 per day gift for those eating and staying overnight at the Community House during retreats, but attending Sesshin is not contingent on giving money. You are welcome at Hokoji regardless of your ability to offer cash.
People giving their time, their warmth, their muscle power and their know-how are what keep Hokoji operating as a community. We welcome newcomers, out-of-town visitors, and the Zen-curious to come and lend a hand on one of house and yard clean-up days. Come pick up a rake, push a wheelbarrow, pull weeds, or team up with a Hokoji member for spring house cleaning. We look forward to sharing Hokoji with you.
We also appreciate monetary and material donations as they relate to planned Hokoji projects. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
