Shambhala Community More Than Matches $250,000 Challenge

With a generous donation, the Foundation launched a $250,000 matching campaign and successfully granted over $500,000 to Shambhala’s central organization.

Thanks to everyone who contributed, Shambhala saw a dramatic increase in monthly donations from thousands of individual members and was able to lay the ground for strengthening programming and services throughout the global community of more than 170 meditation centers around the world. Shambhala Meditation Centers offer a comprehensive path of meditation practice and study as well as other contemplative arts and disciplines.  Shambhala also has rural practice centers in Colorado, Vermont, upstate New York, Nova Scotia, and France where they offer weekend, week and month-long retreats for students at all levels.
