PABFONE plans to build a community center with Nepalese identity and replicas of PashupatiNath temple and Buddha stupa, in the same complex, within greater Boston area to serve the needs of consistently growing population of Nepalese origin within the New England area.
We plan to complete this in two phases. In the first phase, we will complete the community center and make it operational to cater immediate needs of the community. The construction of the replicas of PashupatiNath temple and Buddha stupa will be in the second phase. The estimated time to complete the project is 5 years.
Keeping time factor in mind, we are looking for an existing building for purchase that can be modified to our designs meeting all our requirements. However, as a second option, we are open to purchase land and carry out our own construction.
The total cost of this project will vary depending mainly on the location area of the land and size of the community center building, the temple and the stupa. Based on a reasonable size of the structures and a location reasonably convenient to our majority of the community members, the minimum estimated cost for this project is $ 1 million.
The project is primarily donation based and the major sources of funds are the community members- Nepalese and people of Nepalese origin living within the New England area. The other sources could be people living outside the New England area and other nationals with Hindu and Buddist faith. We also plan to approach the local government for their support.
PABFONE has a bank account with Bank of America, where all collected funds are deposited.
As of 08/24/2015, the bank balance is $88,459.65 which reflects the total donation of $94,167.48 received after deduction of the expenses $5,707.83 incurred so far.
We believe in financial transparency and publish our full financial status with the details of income and expenses and the list of all donors with their donation amount in our annual general meetings as well as in our website.
PABFONE is an eligible non-profit organization to collect donations as approved by the Attorney General’s Office of Massachusetts. We have also received recognition as a charitable organization under provision 501(c)(3) with Internal Revenue Services (IRS), which makes the donations made to PABFONE as tax deductible.
