How Are My Contributions Making a Difference?

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 reached a new milestone with all SGI-USA Buddhist centers now open for in-person meetings and district meetings to take place in members’ homes starting in July. As we make the transition to fully reopen, the SGI-USA has continued to provide licensed Zoom accounts to each chapter, region, zone and territory, as well as to the auxiliary and language groups, ensuring that members can gather virtually and in a hybrid format. Also, last year, the SGI-USA provided each Buddhist center with an Owl device, enabling members to gather in an immersive 360-degree meeting setting for discussion meetings. All of the upgraded technology and support has been provided to ensure that members can gather and receive ongoing encouragement and support.
