Centre Fundraising Support

Welcome to FutureDharma’s Centre Fundraising Support page

At FutureDharma, we see that we have a pivotal role to play in supporting the financial resilience of our movement. We want to share the knowledge that we have gained since our founding in 2016, particularly in our Communications and Fundraising work. That’s why we’ve created our Triratna Communications and Fundraising toolkit, available just below.

Further down this page you will find the ‘Triratna Online Fundraising Toolkit’ which was created by Kusaladevi in 2020 as part of FutureDharma’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We offered resources to support centres in adapting to moving online when centres and groups were closed, with normal sources of income lost. Kusaladevi also recorded an excellent seminar with Sanghamani from the Karuna Trust. These resources are still excellent sources of information and can be found below.
