How are ECF grants awarded? What is the criteria?

ECF provides charitable grants from The Rt. Rev. Bennett J. Sims Endowment to create significant, sustainable ministries and community partnerships that serve people experiencing poverty and oppression as well as encourage spiritual growth for Episcopalians through service.

  • Offered twice a year, our grants are available to parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta and their nonprofit partners to fund collaborative efforts that utilize the skills and resources of our shared communities to make an impact for people experiencing poverty and oppression. Learn more about the criteria for grant applicants.
  • Each spring we participate as a benefiting partner in the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s annual Hunger Walk Run and offer specially designated grants to hunger-related efforts from the event’s proceeds.
