Insight Meditation Central Valley’s EIN is 46-2786127.  It is in the spirit of generosity that IMCV continues a 2500-year-old Buddhist tradition of providing the teachings freely to all who are interested. We do not require payment for any of our teachings or meetings. The support of our teachers and all our organization’s expenses is done through the voluntary donations of our extended community.

While financial support is essential for our organization to function, there are other ways that you can support Insight Meditation Central Valley through service.
