Episcopal Impact Fund and partners receive Cap-and-Trade grant

The Episcopal Impact Fund has been awarded a $60,000 Planting with Purpose grant from California’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund.


This grant will be used to plant carbon-sequestering trees in a disadvantaged community adjacent to St. James/Santiago Episcopal Church in Oakland and to build a community garden at Santiago serving congregants, neighbors and the on-site food bank. In addition to Santiago, Episcopal Impact Fund’s partners are Urban Releaf, an urban forestry group based in Oakland, and Indigenous Permaculture, a grass roots organization focused on food security and revitalizing the ecological health of low-income communities.
