Become a Member

Everyone is welcome to attend meditation and teaching at the South Carolina Dharma Group's Center. If you want to help us continue to present teachings and meditation, consider becoming a member.

Becoming a member of SCDG is not the same as committing to become a Buddhist, which is a process called "taking refuge." Members of SCDG make donations on a regular basis, which are used for rent for the center, funds for visiting teachers, ritual items for the shrine room, and outreach programs. Members are encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting and other board meetings where they may vote on decisions for the future of SCDG.

To help us make the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism available in the midlands of South Carolina, consider becoming a member! Just contact us at or talk with us at the center. We welcome other donations for those who are not interested in full membership. Any amount helps to support our programs.

Dues and other donations may be made by personal check by mail, or cash and check in the donation basket in the shrine room.
