Sri Ram Ashram depends on the generous support of many people around the world who help sustain this project. Here’s how your generous donations help the children of Sri Ram Ashram.

Please read carefully because our system has been updated.
Now you can customize the amount you want to contribute as well as the frequency.

Additionally you can donate through Amazon Smile has started a program for donating to nonprofit organizations. The prices are the same for you, but amazon takes a cut of THEIR profit and donates it! This is a great way to donate to Sri Ram Ashram at no additional cost to you.

All you do is go to and select your charity of choice. Amazon will remember your selection so you don’t have to enter it each time. If you search for “Sri Rama”, ours is the first one that shows up, as located in Santa Cruz. The official name is ‘Advaita Society Sri Rama Foundation’. Most items (even used!) on amazon are eligible for Smile Donation.
