How to give

If you would like to donate one of these items to the community, send us a message with description and photo via the “contact” page, indicating that your request is for “In-kind Donation” or “Information” (“Donations” is reserved for donations in money at the moment).

We will then agree together if you can come and take it to the Healing Spring Monastery or if we can meet somewhere else to receive your donation. We ask that you do not deposit a donation in kind for the Healing Source Monastery in the Maison de l’Inspir, unless specifically agreed.
