Vedic Cultural and Spiritual center is now located in a leased space in Mira Mesa. The number of visitors to the center has increased dramatically in the past four years. It is becoming difficult to accomplish the mission as described above. It is essential that we move to a larger and permanent place. We purchased land for this purpose. A committee selected by the Board is looking into all the necessary actions and permits required to build this center on this land. We need at least $3 million dollars to start the project. We really need the help of the community to generously donate for this cause. There are several programs such as car donation, pillar program, cash gifts are available for this purpose. Since this is a public benefit corporation, the donations are tax deductible. For example, gold pillar program requires a pledge of at least $10,000. it can be donated in $2,000 installments over 5 years. People who are in 30% (federal) and 10% (state) can save 40% resulting out of pocket expenses of $100 per month. (foot note: this is a hypothetical example. you should consult you tax advisor for the correct amount). Companies in some cases can match the contributions. This definitely will reduce the final cost. We are looking for 300 people in the initial phase who can participate in this pillar's program. More details are found in the Donate page. We urge you to consider this as part of your annual contribution for a worthy cause of building a center that promotes the diversity of Indian culture and traditions. It will be also a place for social interaction for our seniors and others, a venue for performing weddings and many dance and music programs.
