Shambhala Chicago is a non-profit organization that depends upon the generosity of our members, volunteers, and patrons to keep our doors open.  Donations also allow us to offer programming to the public and return your generosity by offering others a “Pay What You Can Can” policy.  This means that we do not turn people away from attending a program due to financial difficulty because it is important to us that everyone is able to participate without regard to financial resources.  

If you have ever attended a program and found some benefit from our offerings, we invite you to give a donation today. A one-time gift, or a recurring monthly gift, helps support our Center and our Generosity policy.

Thank you so very much for your donation — we look forward to seeing you online, at the West Loop Center or at one of our other virtual or IRL locations!

You can use the form below to make a donation from your credit card. If you wish to make a donation via direct debit from your checking account, please email us directly at [email protected]

As of April 2020, Shambhala Chicago is directing its Emergency Fund toward those in need as a result of COVID-19. If you would like to support this effort, please note in the comments how you would like to allocate your donation..
