The Episcopal Impact Fund’s Strategic Plan for 2019 – 2021 stated that we would provide two types of Grants within the Diocese of California. The Congregational Grants are one-year grants to help Episcopal congregations in their outreach efforts to people living in poverty. The Community Grants are two-year grants given to organizations that are disrupting intergenerational poverty by serving youth, children and their families. Episcopal Impact Fund continues to provide yearly Social Ministry grants to San Francisco-based organizations.
