Support the Temple

At Toronto Buddhist Church, we are thankful for the all the support we receive from our members and friends. They gladly and unselfishly offer their support by way of donations or skills or volunteer time and effort. With everyone pitching in, we are able to operate the Temple and provide a calm, inviting environment where people can learn about Jodo Shinshu Buddhism and be part of a thriving fellowship.

In addition to becoming a member (for more information on ‘Membership’ please see our Membership page), there are many ways you can support the Temple:

  • You can make donations:
    • throughout the year at weekly services
    • at Shotsuki which is the monthly memorial service to remember loved ones who have passed away during the month, regardless of the year
    • at special occasion or commemorative occasions such as Hoonko, Hanamatsuri, Gotane, Obon, Ohigan and Bodhi Day
    • as you may direct to support specific groups or activities within the Temple, such as the Kids Sangha Program, or the Youth & Young Adults
  • You can become a volunteer and lend some of your time and skills to the many activities, functions and events held by the Temple, or to the operation and maintenance of the Temple itself. If you are interested in volunteering please contact the Temple office through or phone: (416) 534-4302
