Why ECF?

ECF is an Episcopal organization, committed to empowering congregations, dioceses, schools, and related organizations to live out the Gospel. We work exclusively within the Episcopal Church, understand its traditions, and integrate a spiritual foundation into all aspects of a campaign. Our staff and consultants are uniquely experienced in raising funds in the Episcopal community, and we are proud to re-invest the fees we earn back into serving the Church. Through all our ministries, we seek to revitalize Episcopal communities of faith in service to God’s mission.

ECF’s Discern-Study-Ask approach to capital campaigns is designed to provide a successful spiritual, strategic and financial experience. We adapt each phase of the campaign to your size and community culture. We consider a campaign successful when it has not only reached its financial goal, but has involved a wide range of supporters, strengthened leadership structure, and engendered a sense of community accomplishment.
