Hindu (Sanathan Dharam) Temple of Northern Nevada is 501-C Non Profitable Organization.
Dear community members,
HTNN would like to thank the community for overwhelming response and encouragement from the community members. Looking at the responses it is evident that our community is ready to have their own Temple in Reno ASAP.
HTNN is pleased to inform the Hindu community members that as per the original plan HTNN was able to sell small lot for $133000 and after paying all the fees $123308.28 has been deposited in the Temple construction fund. As you are aware HTNN bought two separate lots a while back and the intention was to build the Temple on the bigger lot and sell the small lot to offset the cost of building the Temple. Fortunately we tripled the profit on the original investment. So now is the time for all of us to step up to the plate and donate as much as we can so we can have our own Temple as early as 2019. If we can have 50 families donate $5000 or more we can start the construction as early as next month. At present we have almost 12 families committed to donate $5000 or more. We are planning to visit few of our friends and Hindu community people in California this month to collect some funds for Temple construction as well. Please stay tuned and donate generously to have our Temple operational ASAP.
We really appreciate the commitments which has poured in since yesterday. As always HTNN is weighing in all the ideas and advices which has been provided by the community.
At this point it appears that most of the community members have following suggestions:-
1. Collect the donations from the community and start the construction on the bigger parcel (Lot owned by HTNN)
2. Find a property which is ready to move in with at least 3000 sq ft hall. Hire a competent Pundit with a degree as priest and have fully operational Temple within one month.
3. Buy a bigger property 2 acres or more, collect the donations to have down payment and ask 5 community members to sign the loan documents and make the payments as soon as the Temple is operational.
As mentioned we are always open for suggestions. Please feel free to contact us directly for any other suggestions and ideas. Again thanks a lot and donate generously so we can have our own Temple.. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com and Puneet Kalia firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions or comments.
Dear community members,
As you all are aware that the Temple we had was a leased property and our lease is ending on 31st Dec. further, as you are aware that rental prices are very high in Reno area. If we want to stay in the same property the monthly rent is $3200.00 which we would not be able to afford at all. At this point, we are going to vacate the existing building. We have found another nice property which is very suitable for the Temple. To move into this property and have minimal downtime we have to come up with at least $7000.00. So we need monetary support from the community to have minimum downtime. Please let us know if you will be able to donate at your earliest. Again every property we have seen so far is about $3200.00/month. Thanks in advance for your commitment to keeping our Temple going till we build or buy our own Temple. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com and Puneet Kalia firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions or comments.
We Will update this page shortly.
