Online giving is a safe and easy way to support us. This system enables you to support the Buddhanusorn temple by making a one-time contribution or establishing a recurring contribution through your debit/credit cards or bank accounts.

All online transactions are handled securely through PayPal™ and offer a nice alternative to traditional physical money transactions while providing a receipt for your tax purposes. If you have any questions or concerns about anything on this page please don’t hesitate to contact us.

*up to 3% of what you give will go as fees to PayPal or credit card companies.

Donate highly appreciated stock to Wat Buddhanusorn.  This type of donation will give Wat Buddhanusorn the full current value as a donation and you will receive the full amount as a tax deduction for the current year. By doing so you are also eliminating capital gains tax on the stock which you have donated.

We also accept RMD (Required Minimum Distributions) as donations directly from your IRA.  The Federal Government requires that you begin to take distributions from your retirement accounts at age 70.5 years old and pay tax on that distribution.

Under this plan you can make donations to Wat Buddhanusorn directly from IRA to satisfy your RMD requirement and eliminate any tax you would have had to pay on the RMD.

*Please consult your tax advisor to see if you qualify for these programs before making a donation.  You can also email us for more details at fundraising@watbuddha.org.

Corporate Matching Gifts Program-  Many companies have Matching Gifts Programs to help support charitable organizations that their employees are involved in. Through a Matching Gifts Program the company will match any donation that you make to Wat Buddhanusorn dollar for dollar up to a certain limit.  This is a great way to get your company involved with Wat Buddhanusorn,  For more details please contact us at fundraising@watbuddha.org.

Additional Information

A reminder about credit card
Please be aware, while we accept credit cards for donations, we still strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two good reasons:

  • Although many pay off their credit card balances each month, many also do not.We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the temple.
  • We offer the opportunity to donate by credit card as a convenience to those who manage their finances in a good way. With electronic transfer (your bank online “Bill Pay”), your entire gift amount goes to the temple.

When using a credit card through PayPal, as much as 3% of your gift can go to the PayPal or the credit card company.

Privacy Notice

When you use PayPal, you are using a third-party service and their privacy policies will apply to your transaction. Wat Buddhanusorn does not receive, retain, or have access to your credit card or checking account numbers. See our online privacy policy page for related information.
