SuttaCentral is now accepting donations.
In the past we did not set up a donations facility, as we had enough funds for our limited needs. Now, however, we are employing a full time developer, in addition to several other ongoing costs, such as typing the texts in several languages. So we have set this up to guarantee our future stability.
The work behind the scenes has been mainly done by Deepika, who has set up the SuttaCentral Development Trust. Details are on our Donations page.
The facility has been set up using the secure modern payment system, Stripe.
If you think SuttaCentral is amazing, now you can help us make it even better.

Attma suggest to change the sutta on the mainpage, UNDER the Donation-Suggestion, as one could take it as living sample. Maybe with Dhp 77 (and story of origin). Samana guesses that it has more practical learn effect.
This is also something that Samana “likes”…
For donors of over $100, or over $10/month, we would like to offer as a gift a printed copy of the Theragāthā, the “Verses of the Senior Monks”. This fascinating but little-known text from the Pali Canon has been freshly translated by Bhante Sujato for SuttaCentral.
Good idea, thanks. It will change, and I’ll bear this in mind for the future.
Is suttacentral down?
When I go to suttacentral.net I get the following message:
A secure connection cannot be established because this site uses an unsupported protocol.
The site is fine. Try clearing your cache, or try again in a little while. We’ve made some changes in handling SLL and it may be confused.
I just got through to suttacentral via one of the links at http://www.proxy4free.com/list/webproxy1.html
But I’ll try again in the evening to go direct again.
I also use wordpress for a Buddhist blog (my primary focus is the canadian buddhist community). I’ve really enjoyed your posts and would love to help out with Sutta Central. How did you manage to make that red donate sign and I’ll make a post on my blog as well to help get the word out :).
Thanks so much for the kind offer. Probably the easiest way to support SC would be to provide a link to our donations page, with a short explanation of what we are doing: https://suttacentral.net/donations
Nice site, by the way!
Thank you so much for the compliment! I just put up a post to try and raise awareness for SuttaCentral. I hope your upcoming retreat goes great 🙂 The participants are definitely in for a great experience. All the best from us in Canada!
