How is ECF funded?

ECF is funded by the Rt. Rev. Bennett J. Sims Endowment. We also raise funds through events (e.g., annual Hunger Walk Run) and individual giving (e.g., donations, planned giving opportunities, and legacy gifts). We are the only ministry in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta that provides opportunities for individuals to establish a lasting legacy to serve the poor and oppressed, as well as to honor their individual parishes in their estate. Unlike other organizations in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, we are not funded by the fair share assessment.

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.
