Matching Opportunity September 2020

The Benevolent Association has supported spiritual healing since it opened its doors over a century ago. Countless individuals have come to the BA for the Christian Science refuge and care it provides and have found healing, spiritual growth, and regeneration.


“I will forever be grateful to Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association. I was thrown off over the handlebars of my bicycle. It was quite a startling event to say the least. I had what appeared to be a broken wrist. The next day I went to Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association and didn’t know what to expect. I’ll never forget walking through the door and being greeted by a Christian Science nurse. I was immediately met with a feeling of love.” 


This healing is just one example of those supported by your contributions. We invite you to listen to the full audio of this healing account online at: Highlights of this testimony are included with this letter.

Your role is vital to the Benevolent Association’s purpose of healing. Your prayers and the love expressed through your contributions are felt and greatly appreciated. Your embrace of the BA is integral to our providing Christian Science nursing within this refuge and beyond.

Your support, along with the contributions from others throughout the worldwide Field, makeup 35% of the total income needed each year in order to offer our Christian Science nursing services. In order to help raise the funds still needed this year, a donor has offered to match all Sustaining Circle gifts. Single gifts of $1,000 or more or monthly gifts of $84 or more will be matched through September 30, 2020 or until the match is met. We hope you will consider joining the Sustaining Circle or renewing your membership. You will be providing an important financial foundation for our Christian Science nursing services.

If the Sustaining Circle is not the right step for now, please consider starting a monthly gift. By giving monthly, you are providing a steady, dependable income for the BA.

During this Matching Opportunity, all new monthly gifts of $5 or more will also be matched through the end of September. Monthly gifts can be canceled or changed at any time.

Every gift is a blessing. Thank you for your thoughtful and loving embrace of the BA and those in need of healing.

With grateful hearts,

Susan B Johnson  
Susan R. Johnson Janiva Toler
President, Board of Trustees Chief Executive Officer




P.S. If you are already a Sustaining Circle member, we thank you! Any gift you make before September 30, 2020 will also be matched until the match is met.
