It is only with your generous assistance that this new temple will go from being a dream to a reality. We need your help!

SLCD respectfully requests the donation of $200,000 or more from three main benefactors. In addition to the $600,000 the Society has in cash, your $200,000 donation will give this project crucial momentum. When people can physically see the scale and progress of the project, they will be inspired to contribute also. We look forward to discussing the benefits and acknowledgements associated with this auspicious opportunity.

We are also requesting five or more influential contributors to donate between $50,000 and $150,000 and be recognized for funding critical elements of the project.

We are also searching for generous patrons to donate between $1,000 and $50,000, to sponsor any of the following -

  • Carpets
  • Plaster work
  • Painting
  • Heating, cooling and ventilation
  • Kitchen and bathroom fit out
  • Furniture
  • Landscaping
  • Blockwork
  • Concrete (ground slab and top slab)
  • Timber frame
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Floor tiles
  • Roof tiles

Every dollar given towards a brick, a tile or a tin of paint helps this wonderful cause.

Your generosity is essential to our success.
