"I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water." -- Isaiah
Other Financial Assistance
The following is a list of funds that also provide financial assistance to individuals who want Christian Science nursing. The NFCSN may sometimes coordinate with these funds when offering a grant to a patient. These funds, however, are not directly connected with the NFCSN. We do encourage people to continue their donations to these organizations, as the NFCSN cannot cover all costs associated with Christian Science nursing care.
