As we continue our important work to support the Buddhist practice and development of our members while reaching out to those who are seeking a philosophy of hope, financial resources serve an indispensable role. 

Member Care Efforts

The SGI-USA continues to provide licensed Zoom accounts to each chapter, region, zone and territory, as well as to the auxiliary language groups, ensuring that members can gather virtually and receive encouragement and support. These Zoom accounts allow for unlimited meeting duration, expanded participants and webinars. 


Resources for Youth

In 2021, the SGI-USA launched Buddhability, a new digital ecosystem that introduces Buddhist principles to American youth. Since its launch, Buddhability has reached: 

  • 400,000 Buddhability podcast downloads
  • 22,000 followers on Instagram 
  • 20,000 newsletter subscribers
  • 1.5 million people through social media
  • Over 700 guests who have asked to be connected to their local SGI-USA organization
