Appeals of The Friends of Mount Athos
The Friends of Mount Athos, in keeping with its objectives of
supporting the well-being of the monasteries of Mount Athos,
undertakes from time to time special appeals to provide aid
in response to special needs or disasters such as fires and earthquakes.
FoMA invites you to support its ongoing
. Phase Five of the Appeal to be announced soon.
The Friends of Mount Athos are raising funds for the relief and rebuilding
of Hilandar Monastery following the catastrophic fire of March 4, 2004.
Funds raised by the Friends of Mount Athos in the several phases of this ongoing appeal
are contributed directly to the Monastery. In Phase Four of our Hilandar Appeal, 100% of the proceeds were applied to support critical repairs to the Hilandar bell tower.
General and Memorial Donations
FoMA also and always welcomes general donations and memorial donations
Donations which are given for general purposes allow us the flexibility
to use those funds to respond to needs on Mount Athos that arise from time to time
outside of the needs being addressed by our current appeal.
They also support ongoing projects such as FoMA's Footpaths Project
