Help bring inner peace to our community

Kadampa Meditation Center South Carolina is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that completely depends on the generosity of people who attend our classes and events, become members, or support as monthly donors. Through establishing KMC South Carolina, we are enabling ourselves to better serve the people of South Carolina who seek refuge in their busy modern lives. KMC South Carolina is also dedicated to bringing peace and happiness to the world and to removing suffering through offering the methods of meditation and modern Buddhism. By making a donation and helping people find the methods of developing inner peace, you are directly contributing to the potential for world peace, now and for generations to come.

A gift – of any size – is an extremely powerful act of giving. KMC South Carolina is a registered not-for-profit corporation, so your gift is tax-deductible. Your generosity supports us in our efforts to expand our programming, as well as make you an integral part of our collective wish to benefit South Carolina and the Southeast.
