Prairyerth Zen Center is a non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Prairyerth Zen Center is here because of the wonderful donation of time and money from the people who practice here. These donations allow us to provide classes and meditation retreats as well as upkeep of the dharma room and altar. Thanks to all of you for keeping Prairyerth alive and growing.
