Appeals

MAFA conducts appeals as needed to raise funds for the monasteries and the Holy Community of Mount Athos. These are in some cases emergency appeals when funds are needed on short notice, and in other cases project appeals — fund-raising efforts to support projects — for example, restoration projects like the recent appeal on behalf of the Axion Estin Cell.

Simonopetra Roads and Footpaths Feasibility Study

In order to improve its access roads and preserve the ancient footpaths leading to the monastery, Simonopetra Monastery must first conduct a feasibility study. MAFA has committed $5,000 toward its costs, to be funded by this project appeal; but aims to raise the full 10,000 Euros requested.
