Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I am pleased to report that the Episcopal Charities Foundation Board has been hard at work this year. I am grateful for the hard work of our Board members. Together we have re-envisioned our mission to increase our financial corpus and refocused our mission toward Episcopal endeavors in order to have a greater impact in helping the poor and oppressed in our Diocese.
Our next step will be to hire a Director and to expand the Board of Directors to more fully empower our efforts. We then will seek parishes throughout the diocese who wish to partner with ECF in efforts to serve those in need. We look forward to hearing about innovative and incarnational new ministries as envisioned by diocesan worshipping communities, which can become financially sustainable and scale quickly to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
2016 promises to be one of the most exciting years in our thirty-three year history. In effect, we will become a venture capital source for ministry, as we desire to award larger and more impactful grants to parishes and other Episcopal groups who wish to make a difference and intend to join our cause. No longer can it be said there is no money to do mission and outreach in our diocese. We are ready and willing to help! In the spirit of our efforts to support ministry in our diocese we ask that you consider making a gift to ECF. Your past gifts have made possible the work that comes before, and your gifts today ensure the work for the future. Join with ECF as we re-imagine our mission and make real the impact we envision in our work to serve the least among us.
With grateful hearts, The Episcopal Charities Foundation Board of Directors
The Reverend Canon Lang Lowery, Interim Chair
