Becoming an active member of the KMCSF community by donating your time is one of the most meaningful ways to add a whole new dimension to your practice.

By working to improve and organize a Dharma center, we are working for all living beings [including animals] and we are practicing offering happiness to others.

— Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

We are a Volunteer-led Organization

Kadampa Meditation Center San Francisco is a non-profit organization, relying strongly on the efforts of our volunteers.

Volunteering is a great way to share your talents or interests, have fun and help flourish Buddha's wisdom teachings in San Francisco. In addition, volunteering is a great way to get to know other Dharma practitioners and learn naturally about how to apply Dharma teachings to our lives.

It doesn’t matter how small a task may seem; each contribution of your time is immensely meaningful.

Come and speak with us about your schedule and availability and we can find something to match your needs.

Everyone is welcome to volunteer!
