When a person feels that they are becoming a member of the sangha they can choose to become a 'pledging member.' This entails a committment to a monthly donation which is renewed annually. The size of the donation is not important. It is an expression of gratitude and will naturally be an amount that an individual can responsibly commit to.
Pledging members receive a discount on retreat and sesshin fees and may check books out of the Zen Center library.
All donations are fully tax-deductible. Questions about pledging matters can be directed to a priest or to the president of the AZC Board of Directors.
