Per common sense and also the decision of our host, the SF Buddhist Center, the SF LGBT Buddhist Sangha will be postponed until further notice to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. We have created an online meeting so that we can still practice in community during these times.
Please join us!

The Virtual Dana Baskets
We encourage participation in the practice of "dana"– the Pali word for generosity. At our in-person meetings we usually have two baskets out, one for donations toward our meditation room rental which benefits the SFLGBT Sangha, and the other to support the teachers whose time and wisdom is freely given. Our Sangha has thrived since 2002 through the complete support of the weekly donations from our members.
Dana for the Sangha
At this time, if you would like to make a donation of any amount to the SFLGBT Sangha, you may do so through PayPal by clicking the button below. (Paypal account not necessary.)
If you have any trouble with the donate button, please donate via this link (though you do have to have a paypal account to use this link): https://www.paypal.me/sflgbtsangha
You will see Debra's name when using this link, but be assured it is a donation to the Sangha. (The PayPal account has to be associated with an individual.)
