National Philoptochos Ministry Commitments

The National Philoptochos Ministry Commitments are the heart and soul of Philoptochos. All chapters are urged to continue their generous support for these vital national ministries.The Commitments for May/June are as follows:


This ministry commitment provides financial support to older adults and their families, as well as long-term care facilities serving aging Greek Orthodox individuals throughout the United States. Recipients of donations from this fund include St. Michael’s Home in Yonkers, New York and Hellenic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Canton, Massachusetts. In addition, donations are given to assist elderly individuals throughout the country.  From 2007 through 2015, the 75th Anniversary Founders Fund has donated $255,250 to its assorted ministries. This amount was made possible by the continued generosity of all Philoptochos chapters.


Since 2008, National Philoptochos has been pleased to offer financial support to OCF. Philoptochos is a proud partner with OCF, striving to support fellowship on college campuses whose members experience and witness the Orthodox Christian Church. From 2008 through 2015, National Philoptochos has donated $148,200 to OCF. Thank you to all who have contributed.
