Now more than ever, it is vitally important for us to rally our courage individually and globally, to create a vision which leads us through challenging times with insight and compassion. We aspire to radiate a positive social change locally, statewide, and across the world through our activities.
Over the past ten years, we have offered events and programs in Oregon, North America, Europe, and Asia. Based on an encouraging feasibility study, we are launching a fundraising effort designed to build a Peace Center in Eugene. Constructing this center will consolidate our efforts to inform, advance, and inspire hearts and minds.
If you wish to join us in our targeted fundraising effort to pay for our new construction costs, estimated at 3 million, please contact us directly to ask about our Capital Campaign at the number listed below.
