Funds raised will be used to assist children and families in need. Should any funds be raised beyond the amount required by a specific program, they will be allocated to dedicated programming which supports children and families with the most urgent needs as determined by Coptic Orphans.

H.G. Bishop Samuel considered himself a mere servant of God and the people, fulfilling the Biblical verses, “I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; ….”  (Matt. 25:35, 36)  

It befits the memory of this great man—a pioneer, a visionary, and a warrior for Christ—to establish a fund in his name that helps the needy in Egypt achieve dignity and self-sufficiency for years to come. You can help carry on Bishop Samuel's legacy. 
The Bishop Samuel Endowment will use your donation to ensure that this great Church leader's vision lives on. Your generous gift will support university scholarships for students who show leadership and commitment to Egypt and the Church.
