Roof Renovation Project and Campaign
Church of Oakland Needs Your Help
The Buddhist Church of Oakland's roof is in need of immediate
repair and restoration. Our temple is a historic landmark in
Oakland soon to gain city, state and national recognition.
As a Sangha, we are the recipients and caretakers of this
landmark building and must be committed to maintaining its
architectural integrity. The Church, our Sangha, and
friends of our temple are being asked to assist in this time of
need to complete the needed renovations.
Preliminary efforts on Scoping the Project resulted in a
Renovation Estimate of $400,000.
Raising the $400,000 – How we will do it?
* Suggested donation:
- $500 per member or $1,000 per couple

Campaign Status –
August 31, 2011
Thank you to the
many individuals who contributed to the 2011 Obon Memorial
Lantern Tag program. This year the program generated $2,150 in
donations to the Roof Campaign. A special thank you goes to
Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai America (BDK) and Brian Nagata in particular
for the generous donation of red and white lanterns that graced
the odori area. In addition to the Obon Memorial tag program,
the Campaign received an additional $300 in donations and
payments on pledges.
The total monies
received for the Campaign now total $283,977 as of August 31,
2011. We are at 71% of our goal of $400,000. To the many that
have made their donation, a heartfelt thank you; for those who
haven’t yet made a donation, please consider doing so in last
quarter of 2011 so that we can reduce the remaining $116,023 of
our campaign goal.
Thank you for your continued support of the temple and of this
very important campaign!
