2018 End of Year Donation Campaign

As our Sangha continues to grow this year, celebrating our 10th anniversary at our Irving Park temple, it is your support today that will allow us to continue to turn the wheel of the Dharma.

Help make vivid the interconnectedness of giver, receiver, and gift.

Dear Dharma Friends,

As the new year approaches, I would like to share with you some high points from Ancient Dragon Zen Gate’s offering of genuine Soto Zen practice this past year. As you read this report, please recall that all we do is made possible by the support of our friends and Sangha members in Chicago and beyond.

I encourage you to join us in practicing community and giving, and I ask for your support as a donor. As our Sangha continues to grow this year and in the future, it is your support today that will allow us to continue to turn the wheel of the Dharma.

We are grateful to have received generous pledges from two donors who will match the initial $16,000 in donations offered in response to this letter through January 31. This means that every dollar you donate now will go twice as far. Please consider taking advantage of these generous matching pledges and make a year-end donation to Ancient Dragon Zen Gate. As an expression of gratitude, Ancient Dragon will present a special gift to donors who contribute $500 or more.

Your gift will provide crucial support for our efforts to foster peace and to heal suffering in our world and will make vivid the interconnectedness of giver, receiver, and gift.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

With thanks,

Douglas Floyd
Director, Ancient Dragon Zen Gate
