Tell Us How You Would Like to Get Involved

Yogananda declared: “All those who support this work now, and in the future, I bless.” Become an Ambassador of Light and invite your own network of loved ones to experience the joy of giving.

Here are some of the other ways that you can become a dynamic part of the Temple of Light Team. The love and energy that you offer will remain in the temple always.


Become a Ray of Light by donating $10,000 or more

As a Ray of Light, you will be joining the many great souls who pledge to support the Temple of Light at Ananda Village with a gift of $10,000 or more during the course of the campaign. Many hands will make the miracle of this temple, and those who are called to become Rays of Light will be the foundation from which this temple is built.

As a Ray of Light, you will receive:

  • Special invitations to the Groundbreaking (August 12, 2017)
  • Special invitations to the dedication and 50th Anniversary of Ananda celebration (July 2019)
  • Meaningful, uplifting gifts in gratitude for your support
  • Special invitations to all Temple of Light fundraising events
  • Complimentary guest accommodations for 2 nights to attend the Dedication and 50th Anniversary of Ananda in the summer of 2019
