If you are planning, or already run, a Triratna Dharma project then FutureDharma Fund might be able to help. We have three different funding routes depending on your project - Central projects, Major Projects and the Small Grant Fund (details of each round provided below).
You may submit an expression of interest to us anytime, but Central and Major Projects applications may only be submitted when each funding round is open. The small grant programme is open for applications throughout the year. Please contact ...
FutureDharma is able to provide a number of small grants of up to £3,000 for inspirational Triratna Dharma projects and initiatives which have immediate funding needs or smaller local projects which are prevented from establishing themselves due to a lack of local funds.
Example of projects we supported with this fund in the 2017 include:
Flight costs for a Venezuelan mitra to attend a GFR retreat in Mexico.
Room rental costs for the Clacton-on-sea mitra group.
Matched funding for the new Colchester Buddhist Centre’s signage.

Deepening Dharma practice, building sangha, outreach to other people - all of these are happening in Mexico at the Cuernavaca Buddhist Centre thanks to gifts to FutureDharma Fund.
The Cuernavaca sangha have worked together to create a library full of Dharma books and electronic resources.
They tell us that the political situation in Mexico has led to much social inequality. Many young people have never had the opportunity to use a library. The sangha have created the library as a place of inspiration...

Sometimes just a simple thing like help with the rent can make all the difference and help people transform their lives.
On 5th December 2017 in Clacton-on-Sea, UK Grace Welfar and Pauline Anderson became Mitras, deepening their commitment to practice within the Triratna sangha.
Grace and Pauline wouldn’t have been there without your gifts to FutureDharma. They both go to the Clacton-on-Sea study group, which brings 8 people together each week to study the Dharma and build sangha together. Your gifts help pay for...

A huge thank you to everyone who gave to FutureDharma at the International Gathering 2017 at Adhisthana. It was an amazing weekend of friendship, worship and sunshine, of puja, bonfires and singing, and of course, our vegan FutureDharma doughnuts!
Our lovely team were to be found in the barn, telling people all about FutureDharma projects, and helping them make their pledges to support them. During the Sunday evening puja, Amalavajra led a short meditation and gave us the opportunity to offer our pledges...

Sanghadeva loans some of his savings to Triratna Projects.
When you meet Sanghadeva you realise how much he values community. As his name would suggest, he’s all about sangha - he’s been living and working in communities for over 36 years.
Sanghadeva was one of the first people to move to Adhisthana in 2012. When the small community of Order members arrived to live, practise and work together there, they began to rebuild and convert the buildings around themselves. There was no central heating;...
