Donating to the Ecumenical Buddhist Society

“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business. It is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability. It is essential for human survival.”

― Dalai Lama XIV

For more than twenty years, EBS has depended entirely on the generosity of individual people whole heartedly committed to supporting the Buddha’s teachings here in central Arkansas.

We invite you to join in this practice of generosity.

You can use this page to set up a recurring donation or make a one time gift, and also learn about the 501(c)(3) organization that supports EBS.

Pledges and Recurring Donations

EBS has a core group of “Sustainers” – people who give an average of $50 every month by way of recurring donations through PayPal, credit card, Bill Pay or by check.

Some Sustainers give as little as $10 per month, and some give significantly more. All pledge amounts are welcome.

You can always change a pledge, no questions asked. But please consider pledging your own monthly sustainer gift.

To make a regular donation, you can mail in your pledge each month, set up a regular payment with a bill pay service, or use PayPal.  To set up a recurring payment through PayPal, fill out the Donation Amount below, set the frequency if needed, and click the Donate button just below it.  This will take you to a PayPal page where you will log in and complete the set up.
