The Cathedral of St. Philip

2017 Q3 Small Acts of Charity

Grant Amount: $4,500

Grant Purpose: to fund transportation costs related to the 2017 Homeless Requiem which took place on November 1, 2017. The Cathedral’s Homeless Requiem and Dinner remembers those who have died while homeless in Atlanta; the event offers hospitality to and builds bridges with neighbors who are homeless and the organizations who serve them. With recent changes regarding the Peachtree-Pine shelter in downtown Atlanta, which previously funded transportation, ECF’s funding provided bus transportation to the Cathedral’s homeless guests, creating an opportunity for even more organizations to partner with the Cathedral than in years past.

Following Christ’s example and the tradition of The Episcopal Church, we partner with Episcopal communities in the Diocese of Atlanta by providing funding, leadership, and resources to enable Episcopalians to lift up people facing poverty and oppression and to achieve significant, long-lasting change in our communities.
