Your help is needed for 2024 improvements & upgrades

Your gifts to the General Fund are vital to the healing purpose of the Benevolent Association. They provide for our Christian Science nursing services, help support our Christian Science nurses training program, maintain onsite housing for Christian Science nurses, purchase new equipment, and make needed repairs.

With the start of the new year, we’re sharing some of the new equipment and essential projects on our list. Your gifts to the General Fund help make these possible.

“To begin rightly…”

We are grateful to know that the BA as a spiritual idea–is sound and complete; including all it needs to fulfill its holy purpose. It is from this basis that we approach these upgrade projects and other restoration work throughout the Benevolent Association.

We invite you to join us in this important work. Your gift to our General Fund will help pay for these projects and more. Your generosity will help provide this refuge for healing for those in need, today and for generations to come. Every gift blesses this work. We are deeply grateful for your loving support.

With sincere gratitude,

Gregory A. McLane, Chair, Board of Trustees
