The Transylvania Partner Church Education Fund was established in 2001 by the Rev. Dr. Victor Carpenter and the Rev. Sándor Szentgyörgyi, ministers of First Church and Désfalva, respectively, in order to provide financial support to benefit high school and university students of Désfalva who could otherwise not attend school. Because there is no high school in the village, students must commute to or live in distant towns to continue their education, usually not in their own language, and must pay out of pocket for books, travel, room and board. The Fund provides each student a $250 annual stipend to help defray these expenses, and we plan to support 10 students next year. Your gift of any size will help First Church continue its critical role in funding this important program. Click here for the donation form.
