Giving in Gratitude

Though difficult to intertwine, the Betsuin relies on  funds raised during Obon. Every year we enjoy the food, performances, activities and Bon dancing at the festival. And year-round, the Betsuin is invaluable to so many of our community activities and organizations. Obon seems an appropriate time to reflect on all that we have and to give with gratitude. In the spirit of Obon, we hope you find this way of giving both meaningful and valuable. 

You may choose to donate In Memory Of (remembering a loved one), In Honor Of (recognizing a special person/group) or with any sentiment you choose.

Let’s celebrate Obon by remembering family and friends we have lost, mindful and grateful for how they continue to be a part of our lives.
