FoMA aims above all to be a society of friends, united in their interest in the many-sided spiritual, historical, cultural, and ecological significance of Mount Athos.
Membership is an excellent way to get involved in all that the FoMA does. As a member you can, for example, provide support for the restoration or conservation of buildings or help preserve works of art and books of educational or religious significance on Mount Athos.
There are many ways in which members can help to preserve the beauty of Mount Athos and its unique spiritual legacy and purpose, e.g. by fundraising to preserve the unique architecture of the Holy Mountain, by attending the society’s scholarly conferences or by participating in the annual path-clearing expedition.
The Friends of Mount Athos is a registered charity in the UK. UK citizens are strongly encouraged to consider Gift Aid payments via Banker’s Order.
