Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Your generosity makes Asheville Insight Meditation possible. We are a volunteer-based organization, and function with the assistance of many generous volunteers. Our financial support comes solely from donors who value what we have to offer. Donations are used to meet our expenses—such as rent, basic supplies, publications, and our website.
Because Asheville Insight Meditation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your donations are tax-deductible.
We at AIM are very grateful for all the generosity we receive. Your gifts inspire us and allow us to continue to support the unfolding and blossoming of your Dharma practice. Thank you.

Recurring Donations as a Core Member
Recurring monthly donations as a Core Member are a tremendous help to us as they provide a stable monetary flow that helps us budget and plan.
If you would like to set up a monthly donation, you may be interested in our Core Membership program. For a minimum donation of $25 per month, you can become a Core Member and receive discounts to workshops and events. Read more about Core Membership here.
Planning a future gift for Asheville Insight Meditation helps ensure AIM’s long-term viability in sharing the Buddha’s teachings and providing a nurturing, mindful community. A planned gift will often provide you with significant tax benefits as well.
With planned giving, a donor makes an arrangement for a future gift, most often in a will. The gift can also be arranged through a retirement plan, life insurance, appreciated stock, or a life income gift.
Thank you so much for your interest in donating to AIM. Your support is invaluable to us.
