ECF Annual Fund:The annual fund is the bedrock of our fundraising efforts. Your gift to the annual fund is unrestricted and provides the greatest gift of all to the Foundation: flexibility.
Innovation Fund: ECF has a long history of developing creative solutions to meet the changing needs of the Episcopal Church. Today we are working and collaborating on exciting new programs that guide faith communities through visioning, mission, and strategy planning among other inventive and practical solutions to the Church’s challenges today.
Fellowship Partners Program Fund: ECF is celebrating 50 years of providing financial support to lay and clergy leaders who are revitalizing communities of faith through their academic and transformational ministries. ECF Fellows have gone on to become pacesetters, teachers, and scholars throughout the Church, and Church continues to benefit from their efforts today. Your donation ensures the continuance of this important Fellowship opportunity for emerging Episcopal leaders.
ECF Vital Practices Fund: Our new online resource for Episcopal leaders at all levels of the Church builds upon the spiritually-grounded, practical Vestry Papers articles that have inspired and informed vestry members since 1995. Vital Practices explores new ways of supporting congregations by building online communities to share their stories, experiences, and practices. Readers learn from one another, developing conversations with peers to support and sustain their leadership and ministries.
