You can make dues offerings and other donations here

Members of Nalandabodhi Connecticut can make one-time or scheduled recurring dues offerings on this page. The most convenient method is to set up a recurring payment via credit card or checking account withdrawal.  However, there are numerous options below.

If you’re looking for how to make a general donation or a designated contribution, or need to pay for curriculum course tuition or books, please go to our general donation page.

Membership Dues Payment

Your membership dues and donations pay Nalandabodhi’s basic operating expenses.

We ask that members give as generously as they can and we appreciate whatever contribution an individual’s circumstances permit.

Member dues are $40 per month. Students and seniors receive a 20% discount. If these amounts present a hardship, please contact our Membership Coordinator, Pat Lee, to arrange a dues amount that works for you.  You can contact him here.

You can pay membership dues by check, cash, credit card or online (via PayPal).  Please review the options below.

Pay by Check or Cash

You can pay by check either in person, or by mail to the address below. You can pay in installments or in a single payment according to a schedule that works for you.

Please make checks payable to “Nalandabodhi CT“.

Checks may be mailed to:

Nalandabodhi
c/o Deborah Calloway
220 Stratton Brook Road
West Simsbury, CT
06092

You can also pay by cash in person. Please do not send cash through the mail.

Pay by Credit Card

You can pay with most most major credit cards in person via our mobile smartphone credit card reader. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards for payment over the phone.  You can pay in installments or in a single payment according to a schedule that works for you.

Pay via PayPal

You can use most credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover) without a PayPal account, or you can use your own PayPal account if you have one.

Please choose the payment schedule that works best for you. You can pay the full membership in a single payment, make individual membership payments of any size, or pay in automatic installments.

If you have a question about or problem with PayPal billing, or if you need an adjustment or refund, please contact the NBCT finance coordinator.

Why are you asking for my “shipping address”?
When you pay via PayPal, PayPal will ask you for your “shipping address.” Please fill in your current address so we have it for our membership records. Thanks!

Losar — Teaching Gift

It is our custom to collect and give a gift to the talented senior dharma teachers of Nalandabodhi each year at Losar, the Tibetan New Year.  These gifts are sent to the Nalandabodhi national office and are distributed directly to the teachers.

Please note that because these are gifts directly to the teachers rather than through Nalandabodhi, these gifts are not tax-deductible.
