Donations

Since prisoners are unable to contribute for the ongoing support of their meditation courses, the VPT accepts donations from any person or organization who wishes to support meditation courses conducted by the Vipassana Prison Trust.

Separate accounts for the United States and Canada have been created in order to accept donations to the North American Vipassana Prison Trust. Because of cross-border tax and financial limitations, donations can only be used in a very limited way across the borders. Prison course expenses in the United States can only be paid using funds kept in the United States. Likewise, Canadian expenses must be paid using funds kept in Canada. One can, however, donate to either or both countries. Receipts for income tax purposes will be issued to you by your country of residence.
