Donations we receive in response to this appeal will be deposited into the New East Bay Temple Fund at the Mother Center and will be used toward these two phases of the project, and may also be used to cover large maintenance expenses associated with the temple’s buildings and future meeting facilities, grounds, equipment, furniture, vehicles, fundraising expenses, property taxes, and any potential future property purchases—which are not typically funded through our operating budget.
While it is Self-Realization Fellowship’s intent to use all designated gifts as outlined above, SRF reserves the right for the use of all gifts to SRF to be determined by the Board of Directors of Self-Realization Fellowship. In exceptional circumstances where the designated purposes are no longer feasible, or have been completed, or for other good cause, the SRF Board may redirect such gifts to other appropriate ministries or projects, including any project that comes closest to the basic original purpose of the designation.
