ZENSHUJI 100TH ANNIVERSARY FUND CAMPAIGN
Dear Members and Friends of Zenshuji Soto Mission,
It’s been a difficult and challenging past year but we are looking forward to the future with some normalcy, positive attitude and bright outlook to the future. We are elated to notify you of the celebration of Zenshuji’s 100th Anniversary in the fall of next year 2022. This letter is to announce the commencement of the 100th Anniversary capital campaign. Our goal is to reach $100,000 by August, 2022. Doing so will allow us to start and complete some of the major projects that will enable us to better serve our members and friends.
Zenshuji is grateful for your support and monetary donation at any time. We have received donations from Zenshuji members, clubs, organizations, and affiliations toward our goal. We thank you for helping us begin the road toward these special projects related to Wheelchair Access Ramp Relocation, Nokotsudo Expansion and other projects and events.
Zenshuji Soto Mission is a non-profit organization as described in 501(c)(3) of the federal income tax law. Donations may be made in lump sum, spread out in increments, or in one’s will or trust. Enclosed is a pledge form and stamped envelope for your convenience.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and Priests, we would like to express our sincerest appreciation and gratitude for your dedication and commitment to Zenshuji. Like during the 90th Anniversary we will reach the 100th Anniversary Goal together and “GAMBARIMASHO!”
