Contributing to Escondido Center Building Fund

Our Escondido Center is supported by donations received from members and friends

Our goal for this main fundraising appeal is to help raise funds for our Site Improvement Project, which will upgrade the appearance, chapel size, and overall functionality of our main building and grounds. Every gift is deeply appreciated, and will help to make a difference at our Center.

Donate with auto-pay

Escondido Center members now may use auto-pay to donate to our General Fund and/or Building Fund.  This can easily be done by calling Membership Services at 818-549-5151, Ext. 8185. Please be prepared to provide your bank’s routing number and checking account number, or credit/debit card information. Ask about arrangements for receipts.

Project overview and floor plans

Donations we receive in response to this appeal are deposited into the Escondido Center’s Building Fund, and will be used to cover the expenses of this project. Donations may also be used to cover large maintenance expenses associated with the Escondido Center’s current building and future meeting facilities, grounds, equipment, furniture, vehicles, and property taxes – all of which are not typically funded through our operating budget.

Our fundraiser is supporting the expenses mentioned above. More details about the Escondido Center Site Project can be found by clicking here.
