The Money Issue (The Dharma Toolkit Daily, Episode 13)On Thu, 9 April, 2020 - 22:54
Communities of all kinds all over the world have been facing up to the huge economic impact of Covid-19 and the ongoing lockdown. In the Triratna Buddhist Community this has meant financial stress at Buddhist Centres and an urgent need for help navigating the next few months, which will be crucial to the survival of many Centres, large and small.
Enter our two guests! Amalavajra and Danayutta are two former investment bankers, now working hard with Future Dharma Fund to support Buddhist communities in their hour of need. While offering immediate support to folk looking to weather the storm, their message to everyone is about moving towards a bold sense of responsibility when it comes to fundraising - one that is confident and clear about giving people the opportunity to help out and protect valued services. Both in a time of crisis, and in the years ahead.
Check out our Dharma Toolkit space for details of all we have on offer to help you make it through the weirdness and stay inspired.
