Life-supporting benefit society now open to all Christians
The First Catholic Slovak Ladies Association (FCSLA) was founded in 1892 and is one of the largest fraternal insurance benefit societies whose membership is comprised of Catholic & Slavic Members. The organization has recently opened its doors to all Christians.
FCSLA’s 411 branches across the United States support the cause of life in various ways. Some branches sponsor a “matching funds project” to make a bus trip to the March for Life each year in Washington D.C. Every year FCSLA sponsors two buses that leave from the home office in Beachwood, Ohio and travel to Washington, D.C. for the Annual March for Life. It is no cost for our members and local Catholic high school and grade schools who wish to send their teen life groups to experience this awesome support for life.
Other branches commit to volunteering and raising money for local organizations. Among those organizations are Womankind, Cribs for Kids, Angels Place, Cleveland Right to Life, First Steps and Parenting Advocacy Center to name a few. All of these organizations like FCSLA believe in respecting life and helping those in need.
FCSLA is a fraternal benefit society, which is a not-for-profit-membership organization that has a representative form of government and is organized through a branch system to carry out social, educational, charitable, benevolent, moral, fraternal patriotic or religious purposes.
There is not just one person at FCSLA that makes an impact. All the organization’s members are making a difference. Members do amazing things to make this world a better place. If you are interested in becoming a member visit www.fcsla.org or call 800.464.4642.
