Rapid Response Funding
In 2020, Episcopal Impact Fund was committed to helping our partners during their time of uncertainty and great need. We made rapid response grants to 111 community organizations and Episcopal congregations since the pandemic forced shelter-in-place restrictions. Your donations made this possible!
Our rapid response funding included grants to these organizations located in every part of the Diocese:
All Souls Episcopal Church (for a community feeding program)
Christ Church Alameda (for homeless services)
Hope Solutions (formerly Contra Costa Interfaith Housing)
St. John’s Episcopal Church, Clayton (for childcare for essential workers)
In addition, Episcopal Impact Fund donated to the discretionary fund of all 76 congregations of the Diocese, to the two camp and conference centers (Bishop's Ranch and St Dorothy's Rest) and to the Chaplaincy program at San Francisco State University, to be given to individuals facing the devastating financial consequences of the pandemic.
Gratitude from throughout the Diocese
"I'm sitting here in shock and gratitude. We have whole families that have lost their work. Thank you again. May God bless you and -the rest of the team.
– Rev. Anna Lange-Soto, Missioner, Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe
"This is so wonderful and pragmatic! I have at least two parishioners who have lost work. I hope to share some of this with them.
– Fr. Paul Allick, Church of the Advent of Christ the King, San Francisco
