Want to support a good cause?
We are raising money for a new branch of Bliss and Wisdom Northern California (BWNC) in Cupertino.
Setting The Foundation
In order to set the foundation of this Cupertino Buddhist Community Center, we need to first secure the location. The purchase price is $4,800,000. We need the full amount by 1/11/2021 to close escrow. At the creation of this fundraiser, we need ~$2,880,000 to hit our target.
Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. We've included information about what Great Enlightenment Lotus Society of Northern California (dba BWNC) has contributed to its community below.
Programs (of the same caliber or even better) can happen for the Cupertino community if you contribute to this fundraiser!
Serving The Community
BWNC serves the local community through educational programs on a wide range of topics.
Buddhism - People from all walks of life join weekly discussion groups on Buddhism scriptures such as Lamrim. They practice Mahayana Buddhism, cultivating open-mindedness and altruism and wishing all sentient beings to be free of sufferings, no matter who they are.
Health & Environment - An organic-focused grocery store, nutrition seminars, and cooking classes promote a healthier lifestyle while caring for our environment and all living in it. Joyheart Cafe serves up delicious vegetarian meals, and a bakery provides fancy cakes and milk tea.
K-12 & Parents - After school classes and Sunday classes on Chinese culture create a nurturing environment for K-12 students. Parenting talks help first-generation Chinese immigrants face the challenge of parenting with two cultures inside one family.
Young Professionals - Young professional programs include socials, fitness events, mentorship, and leadership workshops.
Seniors - Seniors have monthly get-togethers filled with light exercise, trivia contest, song, laughter, and more.
Thank you for your support.
All funds will be used toward the purchase of the new branch in Cupertino and its future development.
