We have distributed more than $16 million in planned gifts to Episcopal dioceses, congregations, and organizations nationwide, and we manage over $45 million in charitable gifts. ECF can assist you every step of the way – from developing your program, to equipping you with the resources you need to get results. Email Jim Murphy or call 800-697-2858 to learn more.
- Capital Campaigns: ECF offers a three phase Discern-Study-Ask approach to capital campaign management designed to provide a successful experience financially, strategically, and spiritually. Each phase is adapted to our client’s 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.
