Below is the latest status of our cultural committee efforts.
We are elated by the support shown by our members and well-wishers as we continue to move forward to acquire a Cultural Center (Home for OHM). With your generous donation we have to date, got pledges totaling $ 3,80,905 and collected $256,405.
We are recognizing the names of our donors and theirs donation in this site, if you don’t want your name published please let us know and we will mark it as anonymous.
We have increased our efforts to identify a property that is affordable without compromising on the quality. We are committed and even more driven to acquiring a Home for OHM. The OHM Board has unanimously voted to pursue the project to its completion.
Also, we are excited to report that we found a bank that supports Hindu organizations like Chinmaya Mission, is willing to carry a 20 year loan. This in itself is a major accomplishment.
To achieve our goal of a Home of OHM;
•Continue the fund raising with a down payment goal of $400k
•Aggressively pursue members for monthly payment commitments to at least 40 commitments of $100 a month. We will honor payments
•lower than $100 per month to obtain a monthly collection over and above $4000/-
•Approach members for an interest free loan to increase the down payment
We are confident that if our community comes together we can collectively generate adequate funds towards this cause. If you know of someone who is willing to donate or make monthly payment commitments please forward their information to one of us. Please feel free to contact any board members or Rema Nair @ (714) 402-9368, Pat Iyer @ (562) 556-9878, Ravi Vellatheri @ (949) 419-7115 or Vinodh Bahuleyan @ (818) 399-0638 if you have any questions.
