Fund Raising and Donations

There are many ways to give to the temple. You can make an outright donation; give of your time; or give to various funds as a way of honoring, memorializing or congratulating friends and family. The temple budget is greatly enhanced by these gifts.

These descriptions of the various funds will help you decide how to contribute. Thank you for your generosity.  Click here to donate!
