Everyone is welcome to practice at Kannon Do, without requirement of membership. However, Kannon Do’s ongoing operation is only possible through donations of members and friends. Financial support of Kannon Do is based on the traditional Buddhist practice of Dana, an expression of charity and generosity.
The Dana concept of giving asks each of us to consider contributing to Kannon Do according to our own personal means, rather than by a specified dues amount. It suggests a monthly financial contribution of one hour of an individual’s monthly income. As an example, based on a work year of 2,000 hours (40 hrs/week x 50 weeks) Dana for individuals receiving $100,000 per year would be $50 per month; Dana for an income of $80,000 per year would be $40 per month. For incomes of $60,000 or less, Dana would be $30 per month. The Dana approach to giving enables Kannon Do to be supported by a spirit of heartfelt generosity.
