How You Can Help


Your Donation Makes a Difference

The Southwest Sufi Community exists only because of the generosity of many extraordinary people.

A financial contribution is one of the many ways you can honor our Founder’s dedication to bringing more Love, Harmony, and Beauty into the world. We are deeply grateful for those generous gifts which help us support the Voice of the Turtle Retreat Center, Khankah Gaia Noor Residential Community, and Nature Preserve.

The Southwest Sufi Community is an approved 501(c)(3) non-profit; we are happy to provide a copy of our Determination Letter upon request.

Volunteer! There Are So Many Ways to Lend a Helping Hand

While we are always grateful for financial contributions, there are many other ways to give to and participate at the Southwest Sufi Community.
