Contributing to Escondido Center Building Fund

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

Many of our members have asked how they may donate online to support Escondido Center’s operating expenses while we remain closed. Your donations are needed and are very much appreciated!  Your gift enables us to fund the vital services and activities that we offer to our members and larger community, and to maintain our sacred facilities.

Please choose from the following two funds where you would most like to have impact today:

General Operating Fund: Your gift will help us to meet the day-to-day and highest priority general operating needs of Escondido Center. Please click below to donate to the Escondido Center General Operating Fund.

Building Fund: Our highest-priority goal is to raise funds for the Escondido Center Site Improvement Project, which will upgrade the appearance, chapel size, and overall functionality of our main building and grounds. In addition, your gift will help support the care of our property, including costs associated with acquiring and maintaining the facilities, grounds, equipment, furniture, and vehicles, and those associated with related capital campaigns.
