Fundraising For Berkeley Temple's Permanent Home

Several weeks ago we announced plans to begin our fundraising efforts for a new Bay Area Temple and part of our initial steps include developing a Fundraising Committee. This committee will help coordinating the many events and projects we need to organize in order to raise the expected $2.0 - $2.5 million dollars which we need to purchase a new temple. If you have the skills and the desire to help us with these efforts, or if you have ideas for fundraising events or projects that will help us reach this goal, please download the Resource and / or Idea Forms and return them to Brother Kalyanananda at
