Donations for the FELSISA General Fund
Within the FELSISA all financial support is provided on a voluntary basis in the firm belief that giving is to be a joyful “thank offering” based on blessings received and as the Spirit of God leads you. Apart from the support provided by the congregations of the FELSISA, based on a levy system, the FELSISA is dependent on the generous support of individual FELSISA members and others. The following means of making donations are available:

Pastors’ School Fund
This fund is used to support pastors who based on their calling to a congregation of the FELSISA experience excessively high school fees. Schools fees in South Africa vary quite drastically depending on the location of a congregation and the availability of schools in the area.

This fund was started during the COVID-19 pandemic to assist congregations who experience a lack of income. The pandemic could lead to the closure of some congregations if short-term financial support cannot be provided.
