Funding for establishing a SKETE

Glory to Jesus Christ!
Hello everyone,
I am the person in charge of a Registered Charity in Ontario: Skete of Prophet Elijah on Carmel.   I need to rent a very first location for monks (Hurontario Rd., Caledon Village, ON) with enough space for a private chapel and maybe a couple rooms more to host people from time to time.  I am at the very beginning of this mini-monastic settlement mostly to insure I can find a proprer location to continue living my monastic committment as a priest-monk and to be able to welcome people in need of my humble services.  The funds will go directly into the Skete's account with the Royal Bank.  Unfortunately, as we are not registered federally, at this time, any and all donations are NOT tax deductible: we are not there yet!  I have found a proper location in the countryside (North of Toronto) but, unfortunately, I don't have the financial means to move forward.  If the Lord wills this location for the Skete then this site will be helpful to achieve a first goal.  St. Paul says that "the Lord loves a cheerful giver"...  However, I don't intend to make any pressure on anyone: if you wish to give something, whatever the amount, it all counts in God's blessing and I pray the Lord Himself will reward you.  From my part, be assured that I will have you close to my heart in prayer.  Thank you for your time and may the Lord Jesus bless you!
