Chanting MonksIn 2016, KTC hosted the North American Kagyu Monlam for the first time in its 40-year history. ConsecrationTo host such a large event under one roof, a tremendous effort was required to finish the Maitreya Center in time. The fruit of this effort was a successful Kagyu Monlam followed by the consecration of the Maitreya Statue and the building itself by Guru Vajradhara Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa. The Maitreya Center and the rest of KTC Monastery are now under the direction of Tai Situ Rinpoche.

MilarepaWhile many generous donors contributed to the project, KTC was still required to take out a bank loan to finish construction in time for the Kagyu Monlam. We now have an opportunity to pay off the bank loan.

Bumpa Dharma GiftTwo generous donors have offered to match all Capital Campaign donation funds up to $250,000 until the end of the year. We have now launched this matching challenge with new opportunities and prices to make donating easier.

We are very grateful for your generosity over many years and invite you to donate now according to your ability to help KTC become debt free, so we can focus our activities on dharma programs for the benefit of all beings.

We're Almost There!

Thanks to your generosity, we have now raised $235,000 of the $250,000 needed for the matching challenge that will allow us to pay off KTC's bank loan.

We still need to raise $15,000. To help reach this goal, we have extended the end date of the matching challenge to February 19, 2019, the auspicious day of the full moon of the Month of Miracles, the first month of the Tibetan calendar, during which the Buddha performed a different miracle each day for the first 15 days of the month. We would also be thrilled if we could meet the challenge goal by February 5, 2019 - the Tibetan and Chinese New Year..

This extension will also allow many who prefer to donate in the 2019 tax year an opportunity to do so.
