How You Can Help

DONATIONS TO HELP RMERC DURING THE PANDEMIC ARE WELCOME

RMERC has been 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, the 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.   

While RMERC is closed for the pandemic we are not receiving any income from retreats. Some expenses are avoidable, but we still need to pay insurance, repairs, utilities, some staff, mortgage, etc. We need approximately $7000 in donations each month we are closed to survive.

We welcome your generosity during this difficult time in whatever way feels generous given your current circumstances and resources.  Any amount is appreciated.  We know these have been economically challenging times for many, so 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. 

Please consider an ongoing monthly donation. This helps us make our loan payments on the property, while fitting into your budget. Any amount is welcome and you can cancel at any time.

For donations of $250 or under, you can also use Venmo by searching for RMERC Donations (username @johannrobbins).

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 over $250 will receive a tax deduction letter for your 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:

If you are able to consider a leadership donation of $5000 or more, please contact us.

RMERC is a labor of love that has only been made possible through the efforts of many dedicated and generous people. Many volunteer hours have been offered, and many more are needed. There are fun workdays and weekends planned throughout the year. Join our volunteer list below to be notified of upcoming opportunities:
