Fundraiser for Indigenous Peoples Day

October 2024

Thank you to all those who contributed to this fundraiser and everyone who came to the film. We managed to raise $680 for Friendship House. 
To mark Indigenous Peoples Day October 9, we are holding our second fundraiser in support of Friendship House, an Indigenous led Organization in the Mission (15th & Julian off of Mission St), that has been providing services to Native Americans for almost 60 years.

For the whole of October all donations for Sangha Nights will go to Friendship House to support their programs.  Please give a little extra if you are able.  You can pay with cash or credit card on Wednesday nights, or pay any time through PayPal (special benefit), or PayPal Giving Fund (no fees), Venmo (@SFBuddhistcenter),  or Zelle (no fees). 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Movie Night Oct 8! (See below - well worth streaming!) 

Reel Injun: on the trail of the Hollywood Indian, 2010, by Neil Diamond, one of Canada's foremost Aboriginal filmmakers and photographers, from the Cree community of Waskaganish, traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today, with clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native film celebrities, activists, film critics, and historians.

Last year we raised $780 - let's see if we can top that this year.
