2015 breaks Karuna's fundraising records

By Munisha on Wed, 10 Feb, 2016 - 12:21

Thanks to its “amazing” Buddhist volunteer fundraisers, in 2015 Triratna’s Karuna Trust had the best fundraising year in its 35-year history.

Karuna’s head of fundraising, Steven Murdoch, writes: “In a year when the UK charity sector was widely criticised for some dubious fundraising practices, Karuna had its most successful fundraising season ever. This means we are on course to send over £1M to our project partners working with persecuted dalit and tribal communities in India and Nepal.”

Amalavajra reports from the fundraiser's desk

Written a few thousand pounds back (when we were 50% there), this is a great Triratna News report on the fundraising for Bhante’s birthday present. Amalavajra, Triratna’s fundraiser in Europe, explains his enthusiasm.

PS Today we’re 58% there! We still need another £41,000 and we’ve got just 28 days to raise it. That’s £1464 per day.

But that shouldn’t be hard. Yesterday we raised more than that!
