An Appeal from the Engaged Zen Foundation

This from our friend and past interviewee Kobutsu Malone at the Engaged Zen Foundation:

Dear Friends and Supporters,

It has been a long time since The Engaged Zen Foundation has put out an appeal for funding. EZF has been surviving on the donations of a very small number of individuals and frequent infusion of funds from my limited, fixed income. Since most of the work of EZF now focuses on correspondence practice and providing Buddhist written materials to prisoners there has not been an urgent need for the solicitation of funding.

The EZF book; Prison Chaplaincy Guidelines for Zen Buddhism has been out of print and unavailable for a year now and numerous requests for the volume have gone unfulfilled. At this point in time EZF is determined to raise the necessary funds to reprint the volume and requires an infusion of $1800.00 to enable this endeavor.

We are calling upon our friends and supporters to assist us in raising the funds for a second printing of Prison Chaplaincy Guidelines for Zen Buddhism. Please assist us in this effort to help make this valuable text available to prisoners, volunteers and interested parties. Tax deductible donations can be made to EZF via credit card or PayPal by clicking here:

Alternately, donations may be made by check to:
