ECF Ambassadors serve as the primary communications conduit between ECF and their parish, not only raising awareness for the Foundation’s efforts, but also keeping ECF current on the outreach events and opportunities occurring throughout the Diocese. Learn more at

On ECF Sunday, The Rev. Canon Lang Lowrey will preach at your services about ECF's call to serve the poor and oppressed in our Diocese, and during adult formation ECF Executive Director Lindsey Hardegree will address how we might be able to do that in a long-term sustainable way that benefits both your parish and the least among us.

Episcopal Partnership

ECF requires a statement of support from your partner parish's rector and vestry. This statement will address the nature and history of your partnership as well as how the parish is enriched by your partnership. A current statement is required with each LOI/application - statements previously submitted will not count towards the current LOI, and your LOI will will be considered incomplete without this statement. We ask that the parish complete this statement themselves, and ECF will confirm with you when we have received your parish's statement.

PLEASE NOTE: Your Statement of Support is due at the time your LOI is due, so it may be useful to send this information directly to Lindsey Hardegree as well so that she can start this process before you submit your LOI. Her email is
