The meditation periods and classes at Bellingham Insight Meditation Society are offered free of charge. For weekend and residential retreats, a fee is charged to cover costs of lodging and food but there is no charge for the teacher. This practice continues a 2500-year-old Buddhist tradition of providing the teachings freely to all who are interested. BIMS is able to do this because of the generosity of the people who choose to support us.
Your pledge to the Bellingham Insight Meditation Society (BIMS) will pay for our share of expenses for the meditation space as well as support our programs and activities.
Incorporated in June 2007, Bellingham Insight Meditation Society is an all volunteer organization. We are tax-exempt under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Financial contributions to Bellingham Insight Meditation Society are tax-deductible.
You can make a one-time donation for any amount which will be used for the support of our programs. Donations are also invited to support scholarships that make it possible for everyone to attend the retreats that we sponsor, and to contribute to our building fund.
Also please consider volunteering to support the meditation community.
