Measuring Progress

Making an Impact

Since its inception, ECF has donated more than $5.4 million to promote thriving and spiritually strong individuals, families, and communities locally.

The Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia (ECF) was originally established in 1982 as the Episcopal Charities Foundation at the 75th Annual Council of the Diocese of Atlanta. In 2015, these resolutions were revised, with the approval of the 109th Annual Council, to empower the ECF Board of Directors to build upon the Foundation’s heritage by increasing its Endowment, stipulating more “Episcopal” outreach to those in need, and making its grants more effective in support of its mission to serve people experiencing poverty and oppression throughout the Diocese of Atlanta. A further revision was made in 2016, with the approval of the 110th Annual Council, to rename the organization to more closely align with the organization’s work to make an impact for our parishes and those they serve.

As a part of these re-visioning efforts, ECF revised its grantmaking process to fund more impactful gifts. A major goal of these new efforts is to not only “move the needle” for our communities in need but to also build up koinonia around mission and outreach in our parishes and in the Diocese. We look forward to demonstrating the measurable impact of our grants as our new process enables us to invest deeply in sustainable ministries and partnerships in our Episcopal community.
