Unrestricted General Funds Donation

Wat Buddhanusorn gratefully receives your donation, and respects the purpose you specify for its use. Please note, however, that all donations are received as unrestricted general funds of Wat Buddhanusorn. Thus they may be used for other temple purposes, if determined necessary in the circumstances by the Wat’s Board of Directors.

A Reminder About Credit Card

Please be aware, while we accept credit cards for donations, we still strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two good reasons: Although many pay off their credit card balances each month, many also do not. We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the temple. We offer the opportunity to donate by credit card as a convenience to those who manage their finances in a good way. With electronic transfer (your bank online “Bill Pay”), your entire gift amount goes to the temple. When using a credit card through PayPal, as much as 3% of your gift can go to the PayPal or the credit card company.

Privacy Notice

When you use PayPal, you are using a third-party service and their privacy policies will apply to your transaction. Wat Buddhanusorn does not receive, retain, or have access to your credit card or checking account numbers. See our online privacy policy page for related information.
