Dana list

Many lay supporters ask what the monastery’s specific needs are, so they can offer requisites to the Amaravati community. The list below indicates the items needed by the community and is updated regularly. Should you wish to check on what items are most needed at any particular time, you can also contact Amaravati by email, using the form on the contact page. Also, please see the map at the bottom of this page indicating the ‘dana drop-off’ area.

Thank you for your kind support,
Amaravati Sangha
