The Austin Zen Center is a community of people exploring how to apply the Buddha’s teachings in their daily lives. As a member-supported organization, it exists due to the generous gifts of time and money offered by dedicated supporters. Declaring membership at AZC is one way of expressing your deepest intentions and aligning yourself with our efforts to share the Dharma with all who walk through our doors.

Whether your financial situation permits greater or lesser giving we encourage you to pledge at the level that is appropriate to you.
The most valuable benefit of membership is the act of giving to and supporting something wholesome in this world. This cannot be over stated. Other benefits are things such as being able to have private interviews with the teachers, borrow from the library, voting at our annual meeting and receiving a discounted rate for retreats and classes. All gifts are deeply appreciated and your support will enable Zen Center to continue to offer a full schedule of activities. May we all experience the beauty of giver, receiver, and gift.
