Help Us Build the First Hindu Temple in Vermont!

In the first phase of our endeavor, we have zeroed in on a piece of land, priced around $350K, located within the Chittenden County, that we must buy before the end of the year 2023! We have raised about $50K already and we need your help to raise $300K.

Namaste, and welcome to our GoFundMe campaign! We are Vermont Mandir and Cultural center (VMCC) and we are excited to embark on a journey to establish the very first Sanatan/Hindu temple in the beautiful state of Vermont. Vermont, known for its natural beauty and cultural diversity, is in need of a space where the local Sanatan/Hindu community can come together to worship, celebrate festivals, and connect with their spirituality. With your support, we can make this dream a reality! VMCC has been operating a weekend temple in a rented facility for the last three years and has the support of the local community.

Our Vision: The Vermont Mandir will be a sacred place for worship, meditation, cultural events and exchange, and education. It will serve as a hub for the Hindu community in Vermont and will be open to everyone interested in learning more about Hindu culture and spirituality. It will promote the ancient Sanatan values of truth, non-violence, peace, and love.

Why We Need Your Help: Establishing a Hindu temple requires significant resources. We are seeking financial assistance to secure a suitable location, construct the temple building, create sacred spaces, and provide the necessary facilities for our community members and visitors. Your contribution will also support ongoing maintenance and the development of programs to promote intercultural understanding and unity.

Any amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated and will make a lasting impact.

Spread the Word: Help us further our cause by sharing this campaign with your friends, family, and social networks. Your support in raising awareness is invaluable.

We Need Your Support: By contributing to our GoFundMe campaign, you are not only helping us build the first Hindu temple in Vermont but also promoting diversity, understanding, and unity in our community. Your generosity will have a positive and lasting impact on the cultural landscape of Vermont.

Thank you for being a part of this important initiative. Together, we can make the Hindu Temple in Vermont a reality!
