Common Ground Meditation Center invites you to support our community celebration devoted to the joyful practice of generosity.

The Second Annual Festival of Giving is a benefit concert and community celebration devoted to the joyful practice of generosity, being held at Common Ground Meditation Center in Minneapolis on Saturday, September 8, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free with local cuisine for purchase.

Donations will be gratefully accepted to support five local and international organizations that do wonderful work to help alleviate suffering:

  • Buddhist Global Relief
  • Dream of Wild Health
  • St. Stephen’s Human Services
  • Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice Partnership
  • Wellshare International

Each organization will be present to speak with community members at the event. Featured performers at the Festival include: musicians Ellis, Dean Magraw, and Linda Breitag; folk dance caller Ann Carter; and spoken word artists Louis Alemayehu, and Kevin Freidberg.

While donations will be taken in person at the event, you may also donate here online, if you cannot attend. Thanks for your generosity and support of our community efforts.
