Our Funders

The Angell Foundation

The Angell Foundation builds upon the charitable promise of David and Lynn Angell by promoting and advancing high-impact programs that help people empower themselves. Thanks to the generous support of the Angell Foundation, we are able to offer partial scholarships for certain Garrison Institute generated retreats and workshops.

The Hemera Foundation

Fellowships to those who have dedicated themselves to the service of others through their profession or career are eligible for Scholarships via the Hemera Foundation. Those who make their livelihood as Educators, Healthcare Workers, Humanitarian Aid Workers, or Artists are all eligible. The Hemera Contemplative Fellowship Program was created to make the unique benefits of a sitting contemplative practice in a retreat context more widely available.

Trust for the Meditation Process

Scholarships for certain retreats are made possible by a grant from the Trust for the Meditation Process, a charitable foundation encouraging meditation, mindfulness, and contemplative prayer.

The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism

The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism’s long-range aim is to foster the growth and development of an authentic American Buddhism that takes its inspiration from the wisdom traditions of the East but adopts new forms, approaches, and applications that are uniquely suited to contemporary American society and culture. By developing and strengthening the emerging community of American Buddhist organizations, we seek to give birth to an American society that reflects the universal Buddhist values of wisdom, compassion, mindfulness, and meditation practice in pursuit of these values.
