Orgyen Dorje Den is a fully endowed and vital place of Buddhist practice here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche has worked unceasingly to plant the seeds of dharma so that anyone who is seeking to learn can have access to a true and authentic resource. We have a great opportunity to practice and to otherwise support this sacred lineage.


As a non-profit, we rely on the financial support of the community to cover the expenses of running and maintaining the center.   Please help us to preserve and propagate the dharma in this sacred place of practice. You can help by volunteering your time and energy, or by making a financial donation.

Monthly Donor Support:

As a monthly donor, you will provide the financial foundation that allows ODD to count on reliable and consistent annual support.  Our operating costs are approximately $6000 every month . From the beginning, ODD has relied on a group of very dedicated volunteers, and there are no paid staff.   100% of all donations go towards the maintenance and improvement of the center, and for helping sponsor visiting lamas.

Legacy Giving :

Planning for the end of life is something that we all must do, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.  Remembering ODD in your will or living trust is a way to make a difference long after you’re gone by helping ensure that ODD remains viable far into the future.  Gyatrul Rinpoche’s aspiration is that ODD remains for a thousand years, benefitting all beings and leading them along the path to enlightenment.   If you’d like to contribute in this way, your financial planner should be able to assist you in including Orygen Dorje Den in your will or trust.
