To: The Members of the Jain Society of North Texas (JSNT)From: The Board of JSNT- August 15, 2008
This is an important update to our recent brochure that was mailed to you summarizing our construction plans for the common hall and also the associated fund raising plans. Based on your feedback please note WE HAVE ABANDONED THE PLANS FOR BOLIS; INSTEAD, THE AMOUNTS LISTED IN THE BROCHURES FOR EACH NAMING OPPORTUNITY ARE NOW FIXED. Additionally, the fund raising committee chaired by Dr. Dhiren Shah has adopted certain rules for convenience that are as follows:
1. Only one family or individual is allowed per naming opportunity, with the exception of Bhoomi Poojan. We anticipate multiple participant- donors for the Bhoomi Poojan. Their names shall be imprinted on one common plaque specifically designated for Bhoomi Poojan. Otherwise, for the rest of the naming opportunities there will be one donor for each naming right. But, each donor can avail of multiple naming opportunities by donating respective amounts.
2. If any of you have made unspecified contribution(s) or commitments for this project without regard to any specific naming opportunity, and are now interested in donating for any of the naming right(s), the unspecified contribution shall be counted towards the total amount due for the naming right(s). For example, many of you have already paid or committed for your fair share contribution of $6000.00. If you were to avail of no specific naming opportunities then your names shall be listed on a common plaque. However, if you decide to avail of the specific naming opportunities, then the amount of $6,000 shall apply appropriately towards your total amount due for the naming right(s), and your name shall not be listed on the common plaque.
3. The large donors do not need to feel constrained by the amounts designated for the listed naming rights in our brochure. The fund raising committee shall be more than happy to customize the opportunity for them for larger amounts.
4. Since the time is of the essence, if sufficient commitments of donations are not received within the reasonable period of time the chairman and committee shall have the discretion to modify these rules for specific donors as necessary.
PLEASE NOTE THE NAMING RIGHTS ARE AWARDED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS. SO, IN ORDER TO PLEDGE YOUR DONATION FOR ANY SPECIFIC NAMING RIGHT(S), PLEASE HURRY UP AND CALL MEERA JAIN BY MIDNIGHT AUGUST 25, 2008 AT 972-867-7609 or 972-890-3061 or email at email@example.com. Thank you,
Sincerely, /Meera Jain (President - On behalf of the JSNT Board)
