25th Anniversary Appeal

Endowment Fund

June 2010

Dear Friend of CIMC:

As the CIMC community prepares to celebrate our 25th anniversary, we feel incredibly grateful and somewhat amazed at how much things have changed since we first opened our doors in the summer of 1985.

We’re blessed to have a beautiful home in which to practice together…a vibrant Sangha committed to cultivating mindfulness, wisdom and compassion… dedicated teachers to help show us the way…a full schedule of classes, retreats, workshops, Dharma talks, and other events…and a hard-working staff to manage such a busy and growing place.

Now, in order to prepare for the next 25 years – and beyond – we need you to help. How?

By donating $25, in honor of CIMC’s 25th anniversary, to help support the Endowment Campaign.

As you probably know, we recently established an Endowment Fund to help us fulfill our mission. This Fund will enable us to continue serving everyone who wishes to practice insight meditation, even those who don’t have the means to pay. It will help us support our teachers and staff, and maintain our building and grounds. Most important, it will help us remain a refuge for all of us who want to deepen our understanding and realization of the Buddha’s teachings – and alleviate the suffering in our hearts and minds, in our families and communities, and in the world at large.

So far, we’ve made significant progress. But we still have a long way to go. So after much deliberation, our teachers and board of directors have decided that we need to hire a fundraising professional for one year, on a part-time basis, to serve as Endowment Director. This individual will have extensive experience in the nonprofit world, and will be dedicated to taking the CIMC Endowment Fund to the next level – and helping us achieve our goal.

Just $25 from each of you! That will do it. Of course, if you can contribute $250, $2500, or any other amount, that would be greatly welcome, too.

Won’t you please make a tax-deductible donation today that will help us bring in an Endowment Director – and create an Endowment Fund that will serve our entire community now and for generations to come?

Every donation will help, and will be received with deep gratitude.

With much metta and appreciation for all,

Madeline Klyne
Executive Director
