Small Acts of Charity

ECF Small Acts of Charity - 2021, Q3

We seek to create significant, sustainable ministries and partnerships with the community, and we acknowledge that sometimes smaller funding requests are needed to continue our work of building the Beloved Community. In an effort to respond to these needs while preserving ECF’s primary funding for larger partnerships, we have created a separate application for our Small Acts of Charity grants.

While they are subject to the same criteria as our General Grants, Small Acts of Charity are no larger than $5,000. These requests will be considered on a quarterly basis, and we will fund 1-2 Small Acts of Charity in any given quarter.

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 application, and your application 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. (We no longer accept a standard "letter of support.")

PLEASE NOTE: Your Statement of Support is due at the time your application is due. Please send the name and email of your primary contact as soon as possible to Lindsey Hardegree so that she can start this process before you submit your application. Her email is
