Have you ever wonder how do churches and temples make money? While the most common way is for donations, it is definitely not the only means they earn. I know that certain temples in Singapore keep ashes, and the families of the dead have to pay a certain sum to buy the best location, and they have to pay a yearly maintenance fee too. As for churches, some of them have kindergarten classes. Is there any other way that churches and temples can earn?
