FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR ATTENDING EVENTS IN LERAB LING
Enabling everyone who wishes to come to Lerab Ling
Our commitment is for everyone who wishes to come to Lerab Ling, to have access to our programmes, whatever their financial circumstances. We offer different options for those who are unable to pay the standard contribution.
Your contribution toward the costs of running events is calculated to insure our financial security and to keep the costs of all retreats and events as low as possible. Your contribution is meant to cover our expenses towards the travel and hosting of teachers and presenters, as well as the costs to organise the event.
All funds available have been donated by members of the Rigpa Sangha, in this spirit we ask those in need of financial support to attend an event, to make genuine efforts to raise funds from other sources prior to applying for financial help. Financial support will be paid directly to Lerab Ling, not to the participant.
> CONCESSION FOR NON-RIGPA MEMBERS
There are two options available:
∙ Receive a 25% discount on the event contribution by using the code: CONCESSION while registering online.
∙ If you need more support, please request help from the Lerab Ling Support Fund by filling-in this form online before the start of the event.
The Lerab Ling Support Fund is managed by a committee that meets on a regular basis to evaluate each individual request. Please note that receiving this support once does not guarantee that you will receive it for future events. You will always be encouraged to provide some form of contribution within your possibilities.
> CONCESSION FOR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
This contribution concerns those who are registered students in a college or university education. This contribution allows students to save 50% reduction on all our events fees, all year round
