All your donations will be doubled between now and the 30th of Nov 2018

As Sang-ngak-chö-dzong approaches the 25th anniversary of its establishment, we come also incredibly close to reaching our initial fundraising goal of £500.000 to found the Buddhist retreat centre we are attempting to establish in Wales.

Toward putting us over the top, a generous donor has offered to match every one-off or new ongoing donation made to the charity between the 1st and 30th of November 2018, up to a total of £4.444, €5.000, or $5.733. (Note that all donations are to be without return goods or services.)
