Help us build a new dojo in SE Portland!
With more than $50,000 already raised, we're trying to meet our first goal of raising $150,000 to purchase land for a new dojo in Portland's East side. We're looking for a place roughly between 39th and 82nd; we're currently evaluating a property on the northeast corner of NE 76th and Sandy. Once land is purchased, we will start towards our second goal of raising enough money to build our new dojo, which will be an additional $300,000.
To donate, please send a check made out to the Oregon Ki Society to:P.O. Box 2143
Lake Oswego, OR 97035
Please note "SE dojo building fund" on the check so that we can put your valuable donation in to the appropriate fund. Since the Oregon Ki Society is a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations are tax-deductible. All donors will be issued a receipt for their tax records.
Even the smallest donations help, and all assistance is appreciated. From all of the students in the southeast dojo and the entire Oregon Ki Society, Thank you!
