Helping Out at Rivendell

Giving to Rivendell

Once you have been on a few retreats at Rivendell you may start to feel that you have a connection to the place and the ideals it stands for. You may like to feel you would like to contribute something yourself.

An obvious way to help Rivendell and it’s activities is by making a one off donation or setting up a standing order. This helps us to keep our prices as low as possible, making Rivendell available to the widest possible group of people. To make a donation please use our gift aid form. (Pdf format - requires adobe reader) or by Paypal via the donate button below.

Legacy Giving Keep the Three Jewels Shining

Over the past 30 years, Rivendell Buddhist Retreat Centre has changed the lives of many people across the world. With your help, we can ensure the future of this work. There is no minimum amount of money (and no minimum value of gift) that can be left in a will.

Legacies have enabled Rivendell Buddhist Retreat Centre to make some very significant developments, among them the Solitary Hut which over the last 17 years has enabled hundreds of people to come on solitary retreat.

Do consider including Rivendell Buddhist Retreat Centre in your will.

By leaving a gift in your will to the Triratna Community, you can help Rivendell continue to benefit people's lives and help us ensure our retreat centre remains vibrant: keeping the Three Jewels shining worldwide.

Whether your bequest is small or large it is a valuable way of supporting our work far into the future. And, since charitable legacies are paid before inheritance tax is deducted, this can reduce the total amount of tax due on your estate.

Another way to help is by the giving of time and energy. Already many people help in different ways from cooking on retreats to decorating and cleaning.

There may be other areas you would like to help with at Rivendell or specific skills you may have. Please get in touch with us if you feel you have something to offer.
