ECS 2015 Grant Cycle Now Open

ECS 2015 Grant Cycle Now Open

by the Rev. Lucretia Jevne, President, Episcopal Community Services and Priest-in-Partnership, St. Brigid's, Rio Vista

Episcopal Community Services (ECS) is pleased to announce the success of our 2014 Advent Appeal! Thanks to the generosity of you, the people in our diocese, we have raised approximately $7300.00 towards our Ministry Development Grant awards for this year. We thank you! And, in addition, please thank each other for making it possible for us to have grant money to award to congregations for social outreach and health ministry programs.

If you somehow missed the appeal, or if it came at a bad time for you and you wish to contribute now, please visit our website at to make a secure donation. All funds are returned to your congregations in the form of grants.

Grant Cycle 2015 - Letter of Interest
We wish to remind everyone that ECS is now in the process of planning for our 2015 grant cycle. In order to help you make your grant application as successful as possible, we are requesting that anyone considering asking for a grant this year precede that with an informal Letter of Interest (LOI). This way we can better plan, and may be able to offer ways to assist you early in the process. Letters of Interest are due by March 16th. Details about the letter are on the front page of our website:

We look forward to working with you in developing programs that help the least, the lost and the needy among us. You are Christ's hearts, hands and feet in your communities, carrying out his ministry in his name.
