Gift Economy, Donations and The Future of the Temple

Recently a young woman taking a college class wanted to write a paper on the Temple, and asked me to fill out a questionnaire.  One of the questions asked was where I thought the Temple would be 20 years from now.  My answer was: That will depend entirely on the community.

 

For 23 years, founder Genevieve Vaughan has been almost single-handedly funding the Temple. (Donations received from supporters other than Gen Vaughan come to less than 5% of our current annual budget. )

 

Ms. Vaughan, now in her late 70’s, has indicated it is time for us to find alternative sources of funding for the Temple. We have just formed a Temple Council which will be addressing this and other business of the facility, but your generous support, both financial and spiritual is needed.

 

Monetary donations are tax deductible and can be made:

* online through Paypal on our website (www.sekhmettemple.com)

* by mail to:  Temple of Goddess Spirituality, dedicated to Sekhmet, PO Box 813, Indian Springs, NV 89018

* in the Donation Box located at the Temple bulletin board.

In addition, I will be posting monthly a list of supplies and materials currently needed (should you prefer to donate goods,) and the jobs around the property which I would welcome help with.


We will continue the “Silent Auction” fund raisers at the Full Moon potlucks, and have plans for an on-line store.


I’m sure our talented Temple Council will be coming up with many more creative ways to keep our beloved Temple of Sekhmet going.


Blessed be!


Priestess Candace Ross
