Dharma Friendship Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 volunteer-run organization. DFF is funded primarily through the generosity of our contributors and monthly supporters, and by dana (donations) given for teachings. DFF is operated almost entirely by volunteers. Our director, program director, special events coordinators, and about thirty other dedicated volunteers donate their time to run DFF and its programs. We thank everyone who in their way helps bring the Dharma to the hearts of sentient beings.
