Tara Mandala Annual Fund

Tara Mandala Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the primary source of funding that provides vital support to the activities of the organization both at Tara Mandala Retreat Center and beyond.  Given the evolving needs of a growing organization, general support of this campaign is the most helpful to Tara Mandala as it offers the flexibility to invest where the opportunities and needs are most pressing.
