Gifts in Memory or Celebration

DRBU is grateful for the opportunity to honor individuals through memorial or celebration gifts. For family and friends, these gifts can be an especially meaningful way to commemorate a loved one or to celebrate a personal milestone. Please contact the Office of Development at (707) 621-7000 ext.4560 for details.

Legacy Gifts

Consider helping to ensure that DRBU continues serving students and the community for years to come by including it in your estate plan. The simplest way to do this is by designating DRBU as a beneficiary on a bank account, stock or bond fund, IRA or pension fund, life insurance policy, annuity, or donor-advised fund. Or, speak with your attorney about naming DRBU in your will or living trust document. For clarity, you will want to refer to DRBU as “Dharma Realm Buddhist University, located at City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, 4951 Bodhi Way, Ukiah, CA 95482, a division of the Dharma Realm Buddhist Association, a nonprofit corporation of the State of California.”

Also, we encourage you to contact the Office of Development at (707) 621-7000 ext. 4560 or development@drbu.org to let us know about this designation, so that we may offer appropriate recognition and keep in touch.
