Thank you for considering a donation to Cambridge Zen Center. We depend on donations and your generosity will benefit many other meditation practitioners.


We need to raise a quarter of a million dollars to renovate the siding of our buildings, which are rotting, affecting the structural integrity of the buildings themselves.

Your donation will help us to keep intact the space for this rare and vibrant gem of communal practice and life. Please visit to help us to raise the funds needed to Protect our Jewel!
