The TOVP Team headed by Ambarisa and Braja Vilasa prabhus is grateful to the worldwide ISKCON devotee community for all their support over the years. Without your continued and steadfast source of financial assistance we would not have accomplished what has thus far been achieved and offered to Srila Prabhupada. It is truly a miraculous milestone for ISKCON and heralds the incredible preaching opportunities that lay ahead with the Grand Opening of this historic project.
As you know, due to the India lock-down all construction work has stopped, and until lifted the halt will continue. Despite some financial setbacks due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are poised to begin construction in earnest so we can complete and open Lord Nrsimhadeva’s temple wing and altar by 2021.
Below we would like to remind our U.S. donors of alternate ways, some old and some new, to give to the TOVP, a few of which don’t require any direct donations at all, such as AmazonSmile, eBay for Charity and Give with Bing. We hope you will take this opportunity to review these methods of support and do the needful.
DONATE YOUR STOCKS TO THE TOVP
We would like to encourage devotees who are invested in stock programs to consider contributing some shares to the TOVP as a donation option or to fulfill their existing pledge towards the MISSION 22 MARATHON. The TOVP is now set up to accommodate donations of this kind. Please contact Vegavati devi dasi at our Alachua office for more information at email@example.com.
MATCHING CORPORATE DONATIONS IN THE U.S.
Many International and National companies across the U.S. are matching employee donations to the TOVP Foundation directly or indirectly through Benevity, Cybergrants and other corporate matching facilitators. If you would like to double your donation to the TOVP and want to see if the TOVP Foundation is included on your company’s list of non-profit organizations, contact Nandini Kishori devi dasi at firstname.lastname@example.org. To expedite the process, please include your company name in your communication.

PLANNED GIVING AND YOUR LAST WILL
Donating to charities, non-profits and religious/spiritual organizations in one’s Last Will and Testament is a common and respectable act. We hope those with the means will consider the TOVP in their thoughts when creating their final distribution of wealth. Go to m.tovp.org/lastwill to read about three different types of contributions you can make in your Last Will: Fixed Sum, Specific Legacy and Residuary Legacy.
