The Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Marilyn McGuire for her thoughtful gift. Marilyn was active in the Minneapolis Sangha for many years. Marilyn had a terminal illness and decided to make a planned gift to Shambhala. Her gift to the Shambhala People of Color Scholarship Fund was to enable people of color to become leaders and teachers in their communities.marilyn
