Become a Sustaining Member

The primary benefit of Sustaining Membership is knowing that you are helping OCBC’s programs to thrive, both now and for many years to come. Other benefits include:

  • The monthly newsletter Korin (wheel of light)
  • Membership in the national organization, the Buddhist Churches of America
  • The monthly BCA newsletter Wheel of Dharma
  • Priority access to cultural activities at OCBC
  • Use of facilities for events at member’s reduced rates
  • Eligibility for OCBC-sponsored scholarship awards

 A portion of the membership dues goes to the Buddhist Churches of America, which offers programs for lay people through the Center for Buddhist Education, and ministerial training through the Institute of Buddhist Studies.  The Bishop of the BCA is responsible for assigning ministers to local temples.
