Why should I become a regular donor of Columbus KTC?
The practice of generosity, the first of the six perfections, or paramitas, is to give what is helpful and good and to give without selfishness.
Your regular donation helps support our programs and our new facility so that Columbus KTC can continue to provide a respectful and open community for all levels of practitioners to study and practice Karma Kagyu Buddhism. Columbus KTC’s operating expenses range between $6,000–$7,000 per month for utilities, internet, insurance, security, building maintenance, and administrative expenses.
By providing a home for dharma in Central Ohio, regular donors accumulate the great merit of helping connect people to teachings that can transform their lives.
Columbus KTC is a 501(c)3 organization, your donations are tax deductible.

How to Set Up Your Regular Donation:
Why should I automate my payment? The number one reason people stop their donation is that they simply forget to make the payment!
There are several ways to make a pledge:
- Payments may be made by check or set up an automatic payment through your bank. The address is Columbus KTC, PO Box 14946, Columbus, OH 43214
- Credit card, G-Pay or PayPal payments can be made through Kindful: https://columbusktc.kindful.com/
In either case, you can change or stop your automatic donations at any time.
If you had previously set up payments on Easy Tithe, you can visit the easytithe.com site to manage those payments.
Questions about pledging? Feel free to contact our Treasurer, Bethany Dwinnell, at email@example.com.
