Dear Members and Friends:
We thank you for your participation in our temple activities (a few are displayed above). It is through generous donors like you that we are able to continue these programs and we ask you to make a financial Pledge today.
As a Pledge member, you help maintain the daily cost of operating the temple (salaries, utilities, maintenance); support our religious, social and community programs; vote on important temple matters ($150 minimum per individual for voting/BCA membership); receive our monthly Bulletin newsletter; and develop our website where the Sunday Dharma Talks get more than 400 downloads a month.
An average Pledge of $450 per person is needed to meet this year’s goal. Not all are able to contribute at this level so those who are able to donate more are encouraged to do so. All MBT supporters are asked to give what you can financially, as well as your much appreciated time and effort.
