Becoming a Monthly Donor
Practitioners who commit to monthly or yearly contributions are the mainstay of Still Water’s financial support.
How large of a contribution is appropriate? Every Dana contribution is a personal decision influenced by many factors. A traditional answer to the question “How much?” is “Give until your heart is full.” Please know that every gift is appreciated and every practitioner is treasured.
The suggested donation to the Dana basket at one of our evening sittings is $10 or more. Therefore, for convenience, regular attendees often enroll as monthly donors at $50 or $60 per month. Recognizing the many contributions Still Water makes to their lives and the wider world, many Still Water practitioners give more. Currently, the range of our monthly donations is from $20 to $350.
If you would like to become a Still Water MPC monthly donor, please make your donations through one of the methods below.
On behalf of the community, the Still Water Working Group thanks you for your practice and your support.

You can make recurring credit card or ACH bank transfer donations on our Donation Page.

- On the “Give this One Time” line use the down arrow to change to “Give this Monthly” or another option, such as “Give this yearly.”
- On the “Give by Credit/Debit Card” line leave as is or use the down arrow to change to “Give by ACH bank transfer” (ACH is similar to online bill payment, but it is done electronically without an actual check.)
