We’re asking for your help in establishing a Scholarship + Stabilization Fund for Sruti’s economic future.

Why Now?

For nearly a decade, Sruti has been rooted in the mission to be a sanctuary for individual and community growth. This guiding principle has enabled Sruti's doors to be open to a wide variety of community offerings in a way that is accessible to teachers, facilitators, and participants. Countless scholarships, work-trade, donation based events, reduced rates for programs and open access to the space has always been our way.

We continue to be dedicated to keeping our programming accessible, but we’re finding that we just cannot do it alone.

When we struggle under the weight of hardship [economic, political, environmental], the need for deep self-care and sense of community increases. Right now, our Berkshire Community is in need….and right now so is SRUTI.

While we have no regrets about our years of operating with an open-door policy, and will continue to do so as best we can, its cumulative effect on our finances has made it difficult for us to meet our minimum monthly requirements. We are a humble center, not seeking to ‘get rich’ from this initiative, just simply looking for support in continuing to keep programming accessible in our current location, under our current financial obligations.

Why You?

  • you know the profound impact your practice has had on your life, and you are able to help someone else have the same experience

  • you realize that our location is a very special place, and you’d like it to be a bit easier for us to keep it as our home

  • you attend valuable workshops + events with us, and you know the change it can make in someone’s life

  • you led a workshop or event here, and you know that having premium affordable space can help launch a new initiative too

  • you value our community and know the importance of community centers + programming, supporting small businesses and keeping our downtown vibrant

How?

Donations to our scholarship fund are essential to a sustainable future for SRUTI, but please know that there are a variety of additional ways you can help us should you feel called to.

buy some sruti gear

We’ve opened an online shop at Cafe Press where SRUTI clothing and accessories are made to order! This unburdens us from having to maintain a large inventory on-site, and gives you a larger variety of choices. It’s always good for us to have the increased visibility of the SRUTI logo being seen, but additionally and more importantly, the proceeds from your purchase go directly to our scholarship fund.
