We need your help to take care of Gomde
Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche regularly reminds us that our precious retreat home, Gomde Pyrénées, belongs to everyone who practices here. As practitioners we can embrace our responsibility to protect and preserve this powerful and sacred location, both for our own future retreats, and also for the benefit of many future generations of retreatants yet to come.
You can choose to support Gomde Pyrénées Annual Fund, which provides general support for our monthly operating costs or Gomde Pyrénées Development Fund which helps upkeep of our buildings and temple.
Gomde Pyrénées Annual Fund
Your generous contribution to the Annual Fund provides general support to the French Association Rangjung Yeshé Gomdé to manage our monthly operating costs. These funds allow us to care for our dear volunteers who work on the ongoing projects, and to pay for Gomde’s overall household and grounds keeping expenses and utilities, and general administrative expenses.
Approximately 40% of Gomde Pyrénées running costs funding comes from our monthly Benefactor Program donations. We rely on the generosity of our sangha and donors to make Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche’s vision come to life each year.
Please use the donation link below for a one-time donation/or one-time bank transfer and select your chosen amount. If you wish to become a monthly benefactor, we kindly request you to set up a recurring bank transfer for ease in paying your future monthly contributions (bank details displayed below).
