Charity

St. Nektarios Fund

In 2002, an idea was born in a seminary dorm room that has blossomed into something greater than our wildest expectations. In the beginning, our goals were not ambitious… We sent a mere $450 the first year to eight students in Kenya. The small sum was enough to pay for the students’ tuition for an entire year. Since those early days of finding and choosing just a handful of students, we have spread our wings to include more in need. Visit the St. Nektarios Education Fund website for more details about projects, news, or to donate to the building of schools in Africa. {Visit Website}
