Celebrating 25 years of ECF's Endowment Management Program

Dear Friends,

​​​​​​I am delighted to share a moment of gratitude as the Episcopal Church Foundation's Endowment Management program celebrates its 25th anniversary. Founded on August 31, 1998, with just a handful of churches, this significant milestone is a testament to the commitment of our clients and the staff of the Endowment Management program.

To our valued clients, more than 336 churches, dioceses, and Episcopal organizations around the country, I extend ECF’s sincere appreciation to you for entrusting us with the stewardship of your endowment and investment funds. Your support and partnership have enabled us to fulfill our shared mission of advancing the work of the Episcopal Church.

I also want to recognize the dedication and expertise of our Endowment Management staff. Their commitment to excellence and service, coupled with their deep understanding of the needs of Episcopal organizations, has been the cornerstone of our program's achievements.

Together with our clients, a community of Episcopal investors, we have nurtured and managed endowment and investment funds, enabling countless Episcopal organizations to make a lasting impact with their ministry within their congregations and communities.

We look forward to continuing our journey together, guided by faith and committed “to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ,” the sacred calling of the Episcopal Church.
