Mailing List

I'm on your mailing list. Do I have an account at the Account Center?

Not necessarily. Our Mailing List and the Membership & Donations Portal use different systems. You get an account at the Account Center when you become a member or make a donation through the Membership & Donations Portal. 

I have an account at the Account Center. Am I on the SFZC mailing list?

Maybe. When you make a membership dues payment or a donation through the Membership & Donations Portal, there is an option labelled: "I would like to receive news and information from San Francisco Zen Center." If you leave that box checked, you will be added to our mailing list, within a week to 10 days and should receive a mailing from us within about week of that. You will have the option of unsubscribing or modifying your list preferences at that time. If you prefer, you may immediately follow the "Mailing List Preferences" link from the Account Center, enter and confirm your email address, and unsubscribe or modify your list preferences. 

If you unchecked the email 'opt-in' checkbox when you made your dues payment or donation, you will not be added to our mailing lists. But if you already subscribe to our mailing lists, unchecking the opt-in box will not unsubscribe you. In that case, please use this link: Mailing List Preferences

Why can't I manage my email preferences in the Account Center?

We use different systems to manage our mailing lists and memberships/donations. This allows us to offer more than one mailing list. And it allows you to choose the kind of email communication you'd like to receive from us.

If I unsubscribe from the mailing list, will I still receive communications from SFZC about my membership dues and/or donations?

Unsubscribing from the mailing list will not affect procedural email communications from us concerning financial transactions.

How do I change my email address for communications about membership and donations?

To change your email address for communications from us about membership and donations, log in to the Account Center and change your email address there.

How do I change my email address for the SFZC mailing lists?

To change your email address for the SFZC mailing lists, you must first unsubscribe the address you're using now, then join using the new address.
