Glendale Temple East Yard Renovation Project

Special Events and Meditation Gardens

Fundraising Campaign

Plans are underway to improve the empty yard adjacent to the Sunday School and create a beautiful area for special events, gatherings, outdoor mediation areas, and additional Sunday School space.

Work on this project should begin in early Fall 2018 and hopefully be completed by Spring 2019.

The estimated cost of this project is $250,000.  Our initial fundraising goal is $100,000.

Your help is very much appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you meditating in the various meditation nooks of our new gardens.

How Donations are Managed

Dear Friends:

Every gift is deeply appreciated and will help to make a difference at our beautiful Glendale Temple. We thank you for your continuing support.

At the current time our new main fundraising goal is for the East Yard Renovation Project.

Any-Donation-Helps.jpgDonations we receive in response to this appeal will be deposited into the Glendale Temple Building Fund at the Mother Center. They will be used to support these efforts, and they 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 already 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.

Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise funds which will help support the expenses related to this project.

All donations that are not designated to the Building Fund will be used to meet the general operating expenses of Self-Realization Fellowship.

Recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, Self-Realization Fellowship is a public charity under federal law and a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation under the Revenue Taxation Code of the State of California.
