We strive to make the Dharma available to all people, regardless of financial circumstances. For some events, three prices are listed.
Scale 1: The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation.
Scale 2: Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of operating costs.
Scale 3: The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
