Srila Prabhupada said that the temple was already built, but we must take this opportunity if we want to be the instruments and receive the transcendental credit, or someone else will.
With the announcement by the GBC Chairman, Praghosa das, of 2015 as the Year of the TOVP, and the ISKCON’s 50th Anniversary in 2016, along with the overwhelming success of the current North American TOVP Tour, a new and effective fundraising plan has been devised to collect the required funds for its completion. This is the Pledge Program whereby you can make a pledge from one of 10 different donor options and pay it off over the course of 3 or 5 years, leading up to the Grand Opening in 2022. Anyone can participate and make a substantial pledge, paying it off in small monthly amounts.
The 10 Ways to Donate are as follows:
- Radharani Coin (Diamond Patron) – $1,000,000
- Chaitanya Coin (Platinum Patron) – $250,000 (7 have already been pledged)
- Nityananda Coin (Gold Patron) – $108,000 (25 have already been pledged)
- Advaita Coin (Silver Premium Patron) – $51,000
- Gadadhara Coin (Silver Plus Patron) – $25,000
- Srivas Coin (Silver Patron) – $11,000 (452 have already been pledged)

- Golden Avatar Brick – $1600 (857 have already been pledged or paid in full)
- Nrsimhadev Tile – $1000 (673 have already been pledged or paid in full)
- Square Foot – $150
The six coin pledges include a solid metal commemorative coin as a gift to you, as well as the Radha Madhava and Golden Avatar Bricks and Nrsimhadev Tile with your name on them, and your name inscribed on the TOVP Devotional Wall of Fame, amongst other benefits. Simply make your pledge selection below and you’re on your way to helping make the TOVP a reality. Make a pledge today and become an instrument in Lord Caitanya’s sankirtana movement. It’s a once in MANY lifetimes opportunity.

DONATE A GOLDEN BRICK
We are offering the Deities 1008 Golden Bricks with the names of the sponsors engraved on them, to be placed on the platform of Mahaprabhu’s altar. The sponsorship of one brick is $1600.
Be a part of history! Help construct the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium. Donate a Golden Brick that will have your name on it, and placed on the altar of Sri Chaitanya. This is a limited offer as only 1,008 bricks are available. Hurry now!
Many devotees who had come for the Gaura Purnima festival sponsored these bricks as a donation towards the construction of the new Temple and we also want to offer this opportunity to our worldwide congregation.
DONATE A GOLDEN TILE
Now, you can all take part and literally enter into this unique and exquisite transcendental realm of Sri Sri Narasimhadev and Prahlad Maharaja by availing this new opportunity. Just like we have the Golden Brick Scheme for Sri Sri Radha Madhava, we now, for the first time, are making available to all the devotees Golden Tiles which will bear your name and be placed under Narasimhadev’s and Prahlad Maharaja’s Lotus Feet within their Vaikuntha Altar.
1008 Golden Tiles will be made, and to allow any devotee, even those who couldn’t afford to donate a Gold Brick for Radha Madhava, the donation amount for Narasimhadeva’s Golden Tiles will only be Rupees 51,000/- or US $ 1,000/-.
DONATE A SQUARE FOOT OR METER
Srila Prabhupada's most dear and ambitious project was to build the TOVP.
TOVP is not building another preaching center, but actually Mahaprabhu's home. We have a chance to participate in inviting Mahaprabhu to this beautiful temple.
$45 million is approx. 300,000 sq feet at $150 per sq foot. If 200 temples worldwide were to participate in this campaign, it would average out to 1500 sq feet per temple. If all temples could enthusiastically take this responsibility, then this campaign will be successful.
