Benefits of Giving
FSPA donors make our mission work possible. Acknowledging, thanking and remaining accountable to all who support us is paramount. In addition to thanking donors you online, we express our gratitude in several other ways.
Mass and Prayer

Our congregation offers a mass for all benefactors each month and all are prayed for hourly every day and every night in our Perpetual Adoration Chapel.
Magazine and Newsletter
Benefactors receive a subscription to Perspectives Magazine, our twice-yearly publication that reports on FSPA’s ministry work—showing how gifts are being used to change lives for the better. Benefactors also receive copies of our monthly e-newsletter for briefer updates on a more frequent basis.
As partners in ministry with us, benefactors are invited to join FSPA for special events, including important anniversaries and celebrations of our Gospel mission.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of supporting FSPA comes in the form of peace. It’s peace of mind in knowing you’re helping where you can, a peaceful heart resulting from bringing hope to those who need it most and a spiritual peace that comes with proclaiming the Gospel in word and action.

We are delighted to help fund her position with a grant. - Photo courtesy of Tubman House|
