4 Ways you can support the mission and ministries of ECF:
ECF is an independent, lay-led organization that helps congregations and other Episcopal groups develop leadership and raise resources for ministry. We transform, grow, and respond to God’s call in very practical, innovative, and spiritually-grounded ways.We have 4 funds you can support:
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: For more than 45 years ECF has provided financial support to lay and clergy pacesetters who are revitalizing communities of faith for academic and transformational ministries that address critical areas of need by funding ECF Fellows, who have emerged as important leaders, teachers, and scholars throughout the Church.
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.
