Georgia and James Nicholas establish
new fund to assist children
Georgia and James S. Nicholas of Grand Rapids, Michigan recently established a $250,000 fund within the IOCC Foundation to honor the memory of Mrs. Nicholas’ parents, Chris and Amalia Spiris. The “Chris and Amalia Spiris Fund” will assist vulnerable children through educational, vocational, emergency relief and other IOCC
programs. It will also provide capital for some of the worlds’ poorest families so they can create their own jobs, raise the income in their households, and improve their standard of living.
Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas are long-time members of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan as well as members of Leadership 100. Mr. Nicholas is also an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and member of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit Metropolis Council.
The IOCC Foundation, a professionally-managed, not-for-profit support organization, is dedicated to supporting IOCC’s relief and development programs. The IOCC Foundation was formed in 2004 to provide a vehicle whereby assets contributed toward IOCC’s philanthropic work worldwide would receive focused stewardship.
