OM GANESHAYA NAMAH!
Dear Devotees and Patrons of the Hindu Temple of Central Texas,
The year is coming to an end and several of you are pondering about making a donation to a worthy cause. While there are several worthy causes, we hope that you will keep the Hindu Temple of Central Texas in mind and make a generous donation to the temple.
This is a small temple but we have two outstanding priests to look up to for our religious needs. The temple is also quite traditional, often photographed for its beauty with loved ones standing in front of the temple.
There are the usual day to day expenses. the premises and the building need to be maintained. We have an operating fund to meet the day to day expenses and a separate maintenance fund to dip into for needed, sometimes expensive, maintenance/repairs. We also have an endowment fund. The principal in this fund will remain untouched. The interest or gain can be used for any needed purpose if there are insufficient funds in the operating and maintenance accounts. The endowment fund is still being built up.
As you make a donation, you may designate the donation into any of these three. Or it could just be left to the discretion of the management.
We also like to take advantage of employer matching where available.
Again, we sincerely hope that you will keep the Hindu Temple of Central Texas in mind as you make your year-end and ongoing charitable donations. All donations to the temple are tax deductible and we will send a receipt.
As we will be sending cumulative year-end donation receipts of $250 or more, please let us know if you have a new mailing (USPS) address. Please send the address change to the above address or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to continue to fulfill your religious and spiritual needs,
The HTCT Board
