The Europe Center is supported by several pillars. People who have moved to Immenstadt or directly into the Europe Center provide volunteer work in everyday maintenance and further development of the project. They apply their experience and skills in their free time alongside careers and family. The same applies for the many visitors from other parts of Germany and abroad.
The purchase and new construction was financed through donations collected by Diamond Way Buddhists around the world.
Running costs and surplus funds are covered via numerous channels:
- Revenues from lectures and courses
- Monthly donations from around the world
- General donations
- Rental income
- Sale of books and meditation accessories, etc …
- Revenues from sale of food and beverages
All finance and budgetary items in these areas are supervised by experienced volunteers through a non-profit organization and the Diamond Way Buddhism Foundation (Buddhismus Stiftung Diamantweg)
