Fund raising is by far the most challenging task for this project. Well it is true for any non-profit organization and it is particularly difficult for this project since the concept of such a project is unique an uncommon and the Bangladeshi Community as a whole is a first generation immigrants.
However, we are proud to say that the whole amount needed to purchase the land ($137,500.00) was raised from the Bangladeshi community. More than 200 familes donated anywhere from $10.00 to over $10,000.00 for this project! This is an outstanding achievement for the Bangladeshis in Houston.
The project has just began. Our target is to raise 1 (one million) dollar for completing the project and we are constantly workign towards raising funds. A fund raising committee has been formed to coordinate all fund raising efforts.
