Envision Your Future

An endowment fund can grow incrementally through investment returns. New gifts can lead to exponential growth. ECF has long been the primary resource for planned giving within the Episcopal church, and we know that new gifts depend on raising awareness and building trust.

How will church members support your future ministry?

ECF’s experienced endowment management team offers churches, dioceses, schools, and other organizations advice and ideas for raising new endowment gifts for future mission and ministry.

  • Planned giving and legacy societies – An effective planned giving program can sustain your organization in the future. We offer resources for sustaining and managing planned giving programs, including ideas for establishing or reinvigorating a legacy society to honor those who have made or committed to making a planned gift or endowment gift.
  • Endowment campaigns – For endowment management program clients, we provide guidance and advice on launching an endowment campaign, planning a special appeal, and seeking new gifts. Developing and explaining your vision for your endowment is a key component of gaining new gifts; our experienced staff can provide ideas for marketing your endowment to grow your reach and impact.
  • Donor resources – We offer life income gifts and a donor-advised fund so that interested donors can easily make a gift to Episcopal organizations.

Many church members wish to acknowledge the importance of their faith, and their church or faith community. We can help you make it possible for them to do so.

Please contact us for more information. We would like to help you grow your endowment with new gifts.
