PHASE 2: Planning for and building retreat spaces & operating costs – JUMP START!

Are you committed to the vision of KC16? Be among the first to jump start us into Phase Two. As we write in July of 2017, we have completed the $985,000 USD fundraising goal, purchased the ten-acre plot of land, begun the planning process and land studies. Tara and Mahakala pujas are conducted daily.

In preparation for the campaign launch, we invite your support in maintaining and growing the center.   Full Phase Two details will be announced once permit processing is complete, yet we are targeting $500,000 USD for the “JUMP START”. This phase will focus on planning, developing and building retreat spaces for pilgrims to enjoy the blessings of the sacred space and make a powerful connection through practice.

Donors of $100,000 or more will have their names listed on the stone inscription pillar in the courtyard. Donors of $50,000 or more, but less than $100,000, will have their names inscribed on a memorial plaque at the entryway of the stupa building.
