Donation Instructions for the "Olive Wood Program" of St. George Melkite Greek Catholic Church via Holy Cross Melkite Greek Catholic Church
 

According to American law, it is legal to donate tax deductable money from the United States of America to St. George Melkite Greek Catholic Church via Holy Cross Melkite Greek Catholic Church. This donation money is tax deductable because the donation check is made out to a Catholic Church located in the United States of America.

Abouna Firas Khoury Diab, the pastor of St. George Church, has authorized Abouna / Rev. Father François Beyrouti, the Pastor of Holy Cross Melkite Greek Catholic Church, and Martha Liles to collect donations and to send donations to St. George Church.

Abouna / Rev. Father François Beyrouti, the Pastor of Holy Cross Melkite Greek Catholic Church, collects money for St. George Melkite Greek Church in Zababdeh, Palestine National Authority. All this money is placed in the "St. George Church" Program Fund in the bank account of Holy Cross Church. Then, two to four times per year, Abouna / Rev. Father François Beyrouti transfers that money into the bank account for St. George Melkite Greek Church within the State of Palestine, which is handled by Abouna Firas Khoury Diab.

When American banks transfer money from an American bank account to a Bank Account within the State of Palestine, American banks must obey American laws, policies, and procedures. American banks check if the person and/or the organization receiving the money has any terrorist connections. No bank transfer to Abouna Firas Boutros Khoury Diab has been stopped.

The usual procedure is that Abouna / Rev. Father François Beyrouti and Martha Liles do not send the donor a receipt. To obtain a receipt, the donor must ask for a receipt.

  • The donor does the following:

    • Writes a bank check, a cashier check, or a money order payable to "Holy Cross Melkite Greek Catholic Church" (Credit cards are not acceptable.)
    • Writes on the For or Memo line on the check "for the Olive Wood Program at St. George Greek Melkite Catholic Church in Zababdeh, State of Palestine"
    • Writes an instruction letter stating that the money is "for the Olive Wood Program at St. George Greek Melkite Catholic Church in Zababdeh, State of Palestine".
    • A suggested format for the instruction letter is below:

      Rev. Father François Beyrouti, Pastor
      Holy Cross Melkite-Greek Catholic Parish
      451 W. Madison Ave.
      Placentia, CA 92870
