Born from a realization that there is a need for a sustainable fund to support our boys instead of raising funds on a ad-hoc basis, SAPTA decided no fax no direct deposit payday loans to create SAPTA Cares.

Funded each year with a portion of the profits from our annual SAPTA Carnival and new Membership Subscriptions, we hope this will be an initiative that will endure the test of time and continue to reach out to future cohorts of precious Saints each year.
