Dharma Drum Mountain is a Non-Profit organization. We do not receive any external funding from the government, and the centre is funded by kind donations alone.

Donations to DDM Sydney are not yet tax deductable, be assured however that all donations will be put to good use. Your donation will help towards meeting the cost of running the centre and its activities.

We hope to be able to continue to provide free activities/classes to support the general public. It is our hope that Chan Buddhism is to be  made accessible and affordable to all walks of life interested in living a more meaningful life.
