Sanghata Finances

Helping you support the Sangha

Role

The role of Sanghata is to provide support for the basic needs (requisites) of the Pacific Hermitage monastics. Financial stewardship is a primary function.  Financial support for the Pacific Hermitage all comes from donations, whether they be one-time gifts, monthly offerings or donations made during the annual Pah Bah, which is the the Pacific Hermitage’s primary source of funding.  As such, Sanghata plays a prominent role in the annual Pah Bah.  100% of all offerings are used to support the Pacific Hermitage monastics.

Nonprofit

Sanghata is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit corporation registered in the state of Oregon. All offerings to Sanghata are tax exempt.

2019 Operating Budget

The budget for 2019 is $37,400. This very lean budget provides for care of the Monks.

Financials

Sanghata’s financial stewardship in support of the Pacific Hermitage is summarized in the simplified financial statements below. The “Income” column reflects the overwhelming generosity of the lay community in offering financial support for the monastics and purchase of the Pacific Hermitage properties.  Also, apparent in the “Fixed Assets” column, are the 2011 purchase and 2014 transfer of ownership of the original Hermitage property to the Abhayagiri Monastic Foundation (AMF), the stewarding nonprofit for the Hermitage’s parent monastery. A second parcel was purchased in 2014 and this parcel was transferred to AMF in 2018.

Monetary donations are welcome.  For options, please visit the Donate page.
