Support the CAC

The work of the Center for Action and Contemplation is possible only because of friends and supporters like you! Gifts of any amount are received gratefully and are tax-deductible in the United States to the extent allowed by the law.

Albuquerque, NM 87195

Gifts of stock and bequests are also welcome. For more information, contact us at the mailing address above or email [email protected]

*International checks: We gratefully accept checks in U.S. funds. Because our bank will not collect on checks less than $250 and charges a fee of $50 to process checks drawn on banks outside the United States, in addition to the difference in exchange rate, we’re only able to accept checks for $250 USD or more.


Receipt of Donations

CAC acknowledges each donation with a receipt for tax records. If you have not retained copies of these receipts, and your total donations in a year exceed $249, you may request a statement of your donations to CAC for the previous year by writing to [email protected]. (Note that the IRS may not require donations under $250 to be verified by receipt. Check with your tax preparer.)


More Information on Charitable Giving

How CAC Stewards Donated Funds

Our budgeting philosophy holds the CAC to high standards of sustainable and responsible stewardship. We strive to meet operating expenses through earned income. However, donations allow us to make our work accessible to many more individuals than would otherwise be possible. For example, donations help to fund the following projects:

  • Daily Meditations emails—Reflections by Fr. Richard Rohr are sent free to hundreds of thousands around the world, every day of the year.
  • Living School—The Living School for Action and Contemplation opened in September 2013 thanks to the support of donors, including the charter group of Living Stones.
  • Online Education—As funds and time are available, CAC continues to grow its catalog of self-paced, in-depth online courses, open to the public.
  • Financial Assistance—Sliding scale fees and scholarships enable students and those of limited financial means to participate in CAC programs.
  • Collaborative partnerships—Local, national, and international partnerships encourage and extend the CAC’s reach.

The work of the Center for Action and Contemplation is possible only because of friends and supporters like you!
