There are many expressions of offerings in Happy Science, such as offering time, experience or skills. As a non-profit organization, we rely solely on contributions from members (and friends) to fund activities and support our ministers. It is not the quantity that matters, but the quality and attitude of the offering, so we encourage all who appreciate our teachings to consider a showing of gratitude in the form of regular offerings.
Offerings can be made using the "Happiness Planting" donations envelope at your local temple or through our online donations portal.
