An Important Way to Help IDP


The Interdependence Project, with its unique multi-lineage, Secular Buddhist Programs and Transformational Activism, is establishing itself in the vanguard of engaged and mindful communities in the world.  Our outreach includes students throughout the United States and the globe, including Singapore, Brazil, South Africa, South Korea, and France.  Membership in this one-of-a-kind sangha is a commitment of support to everyone’s path of awakening, including your own.  


Becoming a Member of IDP expresses your understanding of interdependence; knowing that to create meaningful change around us, we must develop ourselves, and vice versa. As our influence grows, we have greater opportunities to make a positive impact on our society and the entire world.

Economic Reality

Operating a growing non-profit in New York City requires reliable and continued support from our community.  In 2013, we incurred a rent increase along with other costs such as website upgrades to improve online access. Your Membership allows us to meet the challenge of thriving in a difficult financial climate, as well as helping us budget and plan with greater stability and ensuring our ability to provide programs and events for everyone.
