Graham & Chloe (Downe) Wells

“I support FOCUS because its staff cares deeply that students would learn about Jesus and walk with Him their entire lives. I am immensely grateful for the men and women, both FOCUS staff and volunteers, who invested in me from middle school to high school to college, and even continue today.”


Marshall Findlay

“Throughout middle and high school, FOCUS had a major impact on my faith – providing mentors and friends around the country who, even to this day, continue to ask the tough questions when I need to hear them. I give monthly, because I support the mission of FOCUS and its staff.”
