Dear Friends of Des Moines Zen Center,
The DMZC has welcomed many visitors, guest speakers, and priests from various locations to the Center. The connections keep spreading.
Our hope is to continue making these connections for future generations, but in order for us to do this, your support is vital. Even though our expenses are, for the most part, limited to rent, insurance, and utilities, in order for us to maintain a sustainable practice, we need the help of all who share in our commitment.
If you can offer any assistance, we will greatly appreciate it. If you are in a position to make a regular monthly contribution, we now have the ability to offer automatic transfers.  Setting this up is easy.  Just complete the ACH transfer form linked here and return it to DMZC.  You may scan and send the completed form via email to, send it via postal mail to our address listed below or drop it in the dana bowl at the Zen Center. Regular monthly contributions provide a reliable, consistent income that we can use to pay our recurring monthly expenses. 
The DMZC is a 501(c) (3) organization.
We look forward to connecting with you at the Zen Center.
In gassho,
Eido Espe, Head Priest            Shawne Kleckner, Board President
