Sri Ganesha Mulasthana Murti
Land and Building fund
Although we own the current temple premises at #3 Bishopdale Court, it is not purpose-built, and hence, we will be buying land and building a temple. In order for that to happen, we request devotees and the public to donate generously towards that. The estimated cost currently is about $2 million which includes the temple, a hall to organise events, a kitchen and a dining hall.
How the Money will be used:
All donations collected as a part of this fundraiser will reside in a separate endowment account, which will not be utilized for the temple’s day-to-day poojas and utilities.
Our pledge process allows members to set their own level of support based on a target support level of 5% of household income – we estimate that if families self-assess at this level, we will have adequate funds to operate.
Ordinary Members are also asked to contribute $1,500 to the building fund over the lifetime of their membership. It is generally paid in ten annual payments of $150. This pledge structure is based on our deep conviction that the vast majority of members will be guided by their sense of responsibility to support the Hindu community in a spirit of generosity and goodwill.
Because some members will be unable to meet the target level, we greatly appreciate the generosity of members who are able to make up the shortfall.
Om Gan Ganapathaye Namaha!
