The Oregon Buddhist Temple relies on the generosity of the Sangha and other supporters interested in our teachings and activities.
OBT accepts on-line donations via PayPal. Click the Donate button to access PayPal.
It is free for you to use PayPal to donate - you will not incur any service charges. PayPal makes it possible for you to donate by electronically transfering funds from your bank/credit union account to OBT or by using a major credit card.
If you do not have and do not want to set up a PayPal account, you can still donate via PayPal with a major credit card without creating your own account.
When you get to the secure PayPal site, enter the amount you wish to donate in the "Unit Price" box, and then click "Update Totals."
If you wish to designate your donation for a specific purpose or occasion (for example Dharma School or Spring O-higan), click on "Donation Designation" from the "Review Your Payment" page. This allows you to designate the purpose of your donation by entering the designation in the available box. Your note will ensure the Temple treasurers allocate your donation correctly
Because PayPal deducts a service fee from each transaction (averages 3%), please consider adding a little extra to your donation to help the Temple offset the PayPal fees.
You will receive an emailed receipt from PayPal, suitable for tax purposes.
By-the-way, we also accept checks and cash mailed or brought directly to the temple.
