Stan Kukalowicz Bursary Fund

Help with Retreat Costs

Stan Kukalowicz

Stan was a much-loved member of our Sangha who sadly died in 2014.

Stan had always wanted to help those in need. He had been keen to set up a fund to help Sangha members in financial difficulty to get on retreat and also wanted to encourage our practice of generosity. Stan touched the lives of many people so a bursary fund in his name seemed a fitting tribute. The fantastic generosity of Stan’s friends and family after his death enabled us to do this and the fund is already helping the Sangha just as Stan hoped.

About the Retreat Fund

The fund is mainly to help people who couldn’t normally afford it to go on a Manchester Buddhist Centre weekend Sangha retreats – mixed, men’s or women’s. Any money left can help Sangha members otherwise unable to go to a Triratna retreat centre. If you’d like to give to the fund, please contact reception or donate online through our Virgin Money Giving page.

Who can apply?

  • Anyone who has completed a Buddhism Level 2 / Going Deeper course, for money towards a Manchester Sangha retreat
  • Mitras and Order members, for money towards a Triratna retreat centre retreat
  • Maximum is £200 per person per year
