The Metropolis of San Francisco Philoptochos is truly an army of dedicated women who emulate the love of Jesus Christ through their actions. No task is too big or too small for our 57 parish chapters, and our more than 4,000 members. Special programs including Kids ‘n’ Cancer and Social Services have made a significant difference in the lives of others, caring for the body and soul of those who are the grateful recipients of the unconditional love and support of Philoptochos.
A signature initiative in the Metropolis of San Francisco since 1984 is the Bishop Anthony Philoptochos Student Aid Endowment Fund. In the past decade alone, we have provided $1.5 million dollars in support of the seminarians and students and their families from our Metropolis enrolled at Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. Many of the recipients of these funds have said that they could not have attended the seminary without the support that the Endowment Fund offered them. This would not be possible without your generosity and vision to cultivate the best and brightest leaders for the Greek Orthodox Church for the next generation and beyond.
