The COVID-19 pandemic threatened to diminish the Mountain View Buddhist Temple’s ability to stay connected with the community and its Sangha. Fortunately, some very innovative and talented Sangha members found ways to maintain and improve our connections that we wish to continue. Join the Mountain View Buddhist Temple as it endeavors to maintain connections with the community and Sangha by donating to the Sangha Connect Fundraiser. Your contributions will allow the temple to maintain the bonds it has nurtured over the years, while moving forward post-pandemic.
The Sangha Connect Fundraiser is now at $13,300.00! Thanks again everybody for your generosity. As we move forward to a full reopening, we are in the final phases of prepping the Hondo so we can host services. After that, we will focus on the Sangha Hall gym where Maintenance has informed us we need a new water heater. We know we have asked a great deal of you these past few months, but there continues to be a need for repairs and upgrades due to the protracted COVID Temple shutdown. Please help us keep the Sangha Connect Fundraiser going so we can maintain the connections that have nurtured and sustained us.
Thank you so very much to the Sangha for continuing to donate to the Sangha Connect Fundraiser. As of the beginning of May, monetary and Wish List donations total nearly $13,000.00! With everyone’s overwhelming generosity we’ve received hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, an additional air purifier filter, and one more automatic hand sanitizing station. Your donations have allowed us, in a limited fashion, to reopen Sangha Hall, YBA Hall, and, very soon, the Hondo. So again, thank you very much to all of you who have so selflessly given to the Mountain View Buddhist Temple.
Again, thank you to everyone who has donated to the Sangha Connect Fundraiser. To date we have received nearly $12,300.00 in monetary and safety equipment donations. We would also like to share that we’ve agreed to fund the recent integration of Salesforce software as part of the ongoing infrastructure upgrades to keep the Sangha connected now and into the future.
We were so surprised and grateful to see that we have received enough donations to surpass our initial donation goal of $10,000 this past week! THANK YOU. These donations will allow us to quickly take action to ensure that we can come back together as a Sangha safely in the coming months; we have already begun to take steps such as installing touchless restroom fixtures, UV light filters, and air purifiers at the Temple. Please keep those donations coming in! With your continued support, we look forward to meaningfully investing in the adaptations necessary for our Sangha and community to stay connected beyond the pandemic.
