Albuquerque Shambhala Generosity Policy

The Albuquerque Shambhala Meditation Center is a non-profit, charitable organization run entirely by volunteers. Our funds come exclusively from member dues, donations, and program fees. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

Generosity Policy

We are committed to making our programs and classes accessible to everyone. If the Program Price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer what you are able to pay.

If you would like to use the generosity policy for a particular program, please register in advance and enter the amount you are able to pay in the “Pay what you can” box on the online registration form.

What is the Patron Price?


The other aspect of our Generosity Policy is our Patron Price. Those who are able to offer more than the regular program price can select the Patron Price option.  By selecting this option, your generosity is helping to cover the costs of those who may not be able to pay the full price of the program. Thank you for your consideration, and for helping all to receive the treasure of the Shambhala Dharma.

We appreciate you registering and paying online. This helps us to plan—-and allows us to purchase the right amount of materials, supplies, and food—- for our programs.
