An Appeal To The Sadh Sangat Of Washington Metro Area For Building Fund For GNFA

Dear Sadh Sangat ji,


As this year draws to a close and as you finish off your gift shopping, you are probably seeing year end fund raisers from many of your favorite organisations. As you decide where to donate your ‘dasvandh’ this year, please remember Guru Nanak Foundation of America (GNFA) for its Building Fund. GNFA is tax exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code and all (100%) donations made to GNFA qualify for tax exemption as Charitable Organization. For a long time sadh sangat of this gurudwara has been dreaming of a new and bigger building to accommodate the aspirations of ever increasing numbers and the needs for a Khalsa School and a charitable medical dispensary. During the year, the current management has put this desire on a fast track and the new Capital Project Committee is moving forward in clearing many of the objections from various local bodies and obtained the required permissions. As it stand today we are in the process of submitting final plans and drawings by March 2012 and get building permits. In view of all these efforts and developments, the dream is closer to be converted into reality now. At this stage we need the help of sadh sangat and well wishers to achieve it. We need lot of funds to the extent of about 5-6 million dollars. We, therefore, appeal to you all to please open up your heart and the wallet and contribute as liberally as possible to participate in this gigantic task (Mahan Yagya). Your contribution will be duly acknowledged and used strictly on the building only. You may pay in one lump sum amount or pay regularly in installments of whatever amount. You may pay cash, check or through credit card. No amount is too small or too big. Contribute as much as you can. We appeal to you to direct your charitable contribution to GNFA and get credit for tax purposes for year 2011. Also request your friends and family to contribute to this pious task and receive blessings of Waheguru ji. May Waheguru ji bless you all for this share of yours, in the new building of Gurudwara Sahib.

Thanking you in anticipation,

Kunwar Singh Goomer
