Welcome to Hindu Cultural Soceity of Central Alberta

Our Temple

Our Vision & Mission

The Hindu Cultural Society of Central Alberta is dedicated to realizing our goal of building a temple in or around Red Deer. We believe that having our own worship place, our own Real Estate, our own Mandir, is essential for the visibility and existence of our community.

Having a temple means having a presence in the community, and visibility means that we exist. Without a identity, we are relegated to the margins and are effectively invisible to the wider community. Building a temple is not just a struggle for resources, but also a struggle for identity.

That’s why we encourage every attendee/devotee to join our mission, vision and goal of building a temple and make it a priority for our community.

We understand that passion is an output, but purpose is an input, and we believe that the purpose of building a temple is an essential one for our community. Together, we can make it happen, and we are certain that we all have a purpose to build the temple.

We invite everyone to join us in this mission and be a part of this historic moment for our community. Your support and participation are crucial in making our dream a reality.

Our Fundraising Programs

The Hindu Cultural Society of Central Alberta is committed to raising funds for the construction of a temple in or around Red Deer. To achieve this goal, we have various fundraising programs in place.

Bottle Drive

Collection of recyclable bottles to raise funds for the temple construction


We also accept sponsorships from local businesses and organizations to support our fundraising efforts.

Lump Sum Donation

One-time donations from community members to contribute to the temple fund.

Pre-authorized Monthly Debit

A monthly donation option where community members can make recurring donations to the temple fund


A pledge is a commitment to donate a fix amount (example $500, $1000, $5000, $10000 or higher etc.) when society needs funds to put on a downpayment on a property for temple in future.

Dollar a day (or more) program

A family can donate a monthly amount to support the society. This can be done by direct deposit into society’s bank account or by paying cash every month to any of the board members or Society Treasurer

We also organize events like Diwali, where all proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorship revenue after cost are dedicated towards the temple fund.

Your dreams, our dreams.

We understand that building a temple is not an easy task, but with the support of our community and these fundraising programs, we can make it happen. We are grateful for any support, no matter how big or small, and we appreciate all donations and contributions.

Together, we can build a temple that will serve as a focal point for our community, a place where we can come together to worship, celebrate our culture and heritage, and foster a sense of community and belonging.

Get Involved

There are many ways you can become involved with and help our community, by volunteering to help at the Temple or Community Cultural Centre, donating much-needed funds, or by becoming a member in order to receive the full benefits of our vibrant Hindu community.
