Pledge Drive


In order to secure a loan from the bank as a charitable organisation, we are required to have a certain amount of regular direct-debit donations coming into our bank account. This is needed in order to provide some security in meeting our monthly repayments.


If you would be interested to pledge a monthly donation to help facilitate the reconstruction of the Hermitage, please fill in the Pledge Form below and make arrangements with your bank for direct transfer into the monastery Building Fund account:

Account number: Vimokkharam Forest Hermitage Inc

Bank name: Bendigo Bank
BSB: 633 000 

Account No: 157892977 

Swift Code: BENDAU3B (international only)

Donations are tax deductible and there is no obligation to continue donations throughout the life of the loan repayment. A tax receipt will be issued for each donation received.

For anyone interested in making a one-off donation, this can be done here.

Pledge Form

Please note that submission of this form only provides an in-house notification of your pledge to the Hermitage and does not result in automatic debit from your bank account.

Please make payment arrangements directly with your bank.

Thanks for submitting!

Print out the PDF and post to Vimokkharam Forest Hermitage, PO Box 152, Kallista, Vic 3791, or personally put it into the donation box at the Hermitage. Hard copies will be available at the hermitage as well.

Pledge Drive Progress

Due to the viral pandemic and the financial difficulties faced by many people, we are not actively promoting our pledge drive at the moment. Our many generous on-going pledges are continuing to expire and we are significantly short of our goal and new or renewed pledges are most welcome, but we are able to proceed on what we have for now. The graph shows the pledged donations each month until June of this year (past months in green, current / upcoming months in blue). The orange 'target' line at $4500 represents our goal. See the PDF.
