Your gift also helps support Ananda as a physical center for spiritual awakening, serving seekers throughout the San Francisco Bay area.

Remember Ananda in your will
It’s easy to include Ananda in your estate planning or will. There are also ways to leave money to Ananda and provide an income stream to you or loved ones now. We have received several estate gifts in recent years and they have been a great blessing, allowing us to offer more online services and more support for people who receive inspiration from Ananda around the world.
