A Home for Meditation in Nature

How You Can Help

There are Many Ways to Donate to RMERC:

The Ecodharma Center was entirely founded and funded by generosity. In the Buddhist tradition, generosity (known by the Pali word “dana”) is a central practice, an opportunity to reflect on and recognize our interconnectedness and to give as an expression of our care to support the sangha (community).  RMERC is a special place; for nature, for practice, and for community building. We welcome you to join us in ensuring that the Center thrives so that many can learn on, and from, the land for years to come.   
We welcome your generosity in whatever way feels generous given your current circumstances and resources.  Any amount is appreciated.  If a financial donation is not possible for you today, we hope you will join our e-mail list to stay in touch, and to consider signing up to hear about future volunteer opportunities.  Thank you for your interest and your support.  Welcome to the RMERC community.  We are glad you are here.

Rocky Mountain Ecodharma Retreat Center is a tax exempt charity under IRS section 501(c)(3). All donations to RMERC are tax deductible, and donations $250 or over will receive a formal receipt for your tax records. To see the IRS letter showing our tax exempt status, please click here

Under the CARES Act, taxpayers can now take a deduction for up to $300 in charitable contributions if they don’t itemize on their 2020 tax form. This is a flip from the previous rule that required itemization for a tax break

If you are over 70 here is a great way to give: you can donate directly from an IRA, it is tax free, and the donation still counts towards your required minimum distribution.

You can also donate stock, which is a fantastic way to use it. Donated stock is not subject to capital gains tax (as stock is if sold), and you still get a tax deduction based on full current value. You are essentially double dipping, legally. Giving stock is simple using our account at Stockdonator:
