Donations to the Mountains and Rivers Order

The Mountains and Rivers Order operates without a large endowment, depending completely on students, retreat participants, friends and supporters for the funds to continue its many services. All donations are tax deductible. Your gifts are greatly appreciated.

Donations received by Zen Mountain Monastery will be used, as needed, for any of the activities of the Order, including the Zen Center of New York City.

Thank you for your interest and support of the Mountains and Rivers Order. May we all work together to alleviate the suffering in our world.

To make a donation to the DEIJ Fund, please click the Donate button below.

The MRO’s DEIJ Fund exists in acknowledgement of the historical and systemic discrimination in our society. Funds are available to members of groups who have suffered discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender identity, physical ability or socio-economic class. These funds are to cover travel costs to and from retreats, and to provide stipends for residents. Stipends of up to $1000/month for those who are applying for residency are available to defray lost income and cover expenses during a one month or longer period of residency. Reimbursement for travel costs are available for up to $500.
