Important Announcement for Members: Please Read

Dear Dharma Friend:

We are profoundly grateful for your continued support of San Francisco Zen Center. Your contributions support the practice of so many people in our local temples and throughout the world. Thank you.

Due to an unavoidable change in computer systems, we need to re-enroll all members who make recurring credit card payments. Please accept our sincere apology for any inconvenience.

This change provides the opportunity to develop a membership program that is more responsive to the needs expressed by members in recent surveys: benefits that support practice, more opportunities to interact with the sangha and flexibility of contribution amount. Please take the time now to visit join.sfzc.org and learn more.

Members making monthly or quarterly payments: Please stay connected by taking a moment to re-enroll at join.sfzc.org by June 30th.

Members making annual payments: You have the option to enroll now to receive the new benefits, or at the time your membership expires.

This link to Frequently Asked Questions offers further clarification.

Feel free to call or email with any questions regarding: membership@sfzc.org; 415-354-0355.

With deep gratitude,

Myoki Stewart
Community and Membership Manager
