Dana Economy

Cambridge Buddhist Centre is a thriving Buddhist community based on generosity.

The Dana Economy

Cambridge Buddhist Centre is a registered charity with no outside funding or wealthy benefactors. We are a "dana economy", which means we rely on generosity. People can give in many ways and we would like to make it easy for people to contribute in whatever way they are able to. One way is to make a one off or regular donation, which you can do HERE.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer you can gift aid your donation, whether it’s regular or a one-off. The government then adds 25p in the pound, at no extra cost to you. There is full gift aid information on the standing order form, at the red donation boxes on the ground floor, and on the HMRC website.


If you are making a will, please consider a bequest to the Centre. For more information about making a will:


The Centre depends on volunteers who give their time and energy. If you would like to help, please get in touch with Liz Mantle, our Property Manager: liz@cambridgebuddhistcentre.com. You can help out on a regular basis or just occasionally and in a variety of ways, from cleaning and DIY to setting up for events.

Give in kind

We always welcome teabags, non-dairy milk, toilet rolls, heavy-duty bin bags, and so on. Just adding an extra item to each shopping trip really helps keep our supplies bill down.
