We Made it! Our Insulation Project Matching Donation Goal of $10,000 has been met – Anumodana!
In early August we first shared the news of our Vihara (main building) insulation project and our remaining costs of $50,000. A generous donor stepped forward with an offer to match all Insulation Project donations made from August 25 through September 15, 2022, up to $10,000 in total.
As of today we have received 70 donations totaling $14,380, as well as the exceedingly generous matching gift of $10,000. Thank you to everyone for your truly inspiring expressions of generosity!
Since we first announced our Insulation Project in early August, 110 donations have been received totaling $42,805, including another $10,000 from a very generous donor made earlier in August.
If you’d also like to contribute to these final costs, please see our Support page for the many ways you can give. Be sure to note “INSULATION PROJECT” on your donation, whether it is made to our “General Giving Fund” at CanadaHelps, through Interac e-transfer (Canadian financial institutions only; see Interac e-Transfers on our “Support” page), by cheque or by cash sent through the mail (our mailing address is at the bottom of this newsletter). Any donations received which exceed the $50,000 threshold will be applied to our General Giving Fund for day-to-day monastery needs.
Anumodana! We rejoice in your tremendous generosity and great merit!
