The Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temples of Canada (JSBTC) Women’s Federation or WF is the national women’s organization. The WF Dana Day is the result of a resolution made in 1965 at the second World Buddhist Women’s Convention held in New York City. It was decided that proceeds from the annual designated Dana Day will go towards social welfare projects and related activities. Since then, funds have been raised through the efforts of the women’s groups at Jodo Shinshu temples throughout the world to aid in numerous social welfare activities.
All donations made on March 25 will be gratefully collected and sent to our National office so that the WF can
continue to support social welfare initiatives. Thank you for your generous support of “Dana” – giving without
thought of receiving something in return.
Also, after the service on Sunday, March 25, please meet downstairs for tea and learn more about the Women’s Federation.
