Make a Future Possible for an Orphaned Child
Your gift will make a positive difference in the lives of African orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC). Your regular donation will help the orphans by providing housing, food, clothing, health-care, education, and loving caregivers. Even if you can donate only $5.00 a week, that would be $20 a month and would come to just $240 a year. To ensure that your generosity has the most impact, please consider pledging annually.
In fiscal year 2019, 95 percent of all SPCS expenditures went to program services to include food, medicine, education, bonuses for caregivers, building materials, labor and livestock. The SPCS has no paid staff, and its only expenses are the costs of advertising and payment to our sister organization in Zambia to monitor and evaluate the Lusaka projects; thus, donations go directly to its projects which are closely monitored and regularly visited by SPCS Committee members.
For more information, or to volunteer to assist the St. Peter Claver Society, contact St. John the Beloved Parish at 703-356-7916 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
