Supporting Söpa Chöling Retreats
It is a tradition that people who cannot do retreat themselves share the merit by offering financial support to the retreatants. If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause, please consider donating to one of these funds:
- The Söpa Chöling Scholarship Fund. This fund provides financial support for those who wish to participate in programs offered at Söpa Chöling including the traditional three year retreat, the annual Vajrayogini Druppa, the Six Yogas, Mahamudra and Vajrakilaya retreats.
- The Söpa Chöling Operating Fund. This fund is not for scholarships, but is designed to cover expenses incurred by Söpa Chöling in its mission of providing a container for three-year retreats and other vajrayana programs.
You can donate to these funds through the Gampo Abbey website. If you are in Canada or the United States, you can donate online. Otherwise, you can donate by phone or by mail. Be sure you specify that you are donating to the Söpa Chöling Scholarship Fund or the Söpa Chöling Operating Fund. This is a tax-deductible donation. Thank you very much!

If you know of someone in particular who needs support, you are also welcome to send money to that person individually, though this kind of donation is not tax-deductible.
The names of retreat benefactors are kept in the Söpa Chöling Shrine Room and are included in the retreat mandala and in some specific practices. But the most precious gift is the atmosphere of gratitude and appreciation that our patrons create during this rigorous training period.
Contact the Söpa Chöling druppon for more information about these funds.
