What Is Stewardship? Stewardship is . . . Everything I do after
I say, "I believe."

God calls us to share in God’s mission of caring for the world, using all the gifts God has given us. We are stewards, caretakers of God’s gifts. Everything we have was a gift from God, and God asks us to use it all for God’s purposes. Generosity flows naturally out of our gratitude for the gift of love, family, and life itself.

Through The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS), Episcopal Charities offers each congregation in the diocese a full and rich source of stewardship resources for your seasonal and year round stewardship programs and campaigns. For the User ID and Password to access these resources, contact Dayton at dayton@ecsefl.org or call 954-334-0105.

Episcopal Charities of Southeast Florida Welcomes You

 

The poor and needy have been granted $2 million in aid as support from Episcopal Charities since 2000.
>Learn more about our work

Southeast Florida isn't just a haven for the retired and wealthy. Sadly, there are literally thousands of needy families that desperately require daily help and support. Young families, the elderly and those less fortunate receive a hot meal, a bag of groceries, medical assistance, clothing and shelter through Episcopal Charities Partners.

 
 

Episcopal Charities of SE Florida Establishes the Episcopal Charities Vision Fund

In 2016, ECSEFL awarded $313,000 in grants to forty church and program partner ministries throughout our diocese. Most of this support is enabled through a combination of monies from the diocesan human needs budget and an endowment largely funded by a bequest from the estate of Blair and Agnes Smith to Episcopal Charities.

With the intention of expanding our ability to respond to the ever-increasing needs of the poor, hungry and homeless through the programs which serve them, Episcopal Charities has announced the creation of the Episcopal Charities Vision Fund. This Fund will be the overarching umbrella into which gifts of cash, securities and deferred gifts through estate planning will be sought for the sole purpose of sponsoring programs of support for the poor in our diocese. By contributing at one of several giving levels or remembering Episcopal Charities in one’s will, donors will become members of the Episcopal Charities Vision Fund Society. Some may wish to dedicate their gift to the honor or memory of a special person in their life.

Giving Levels:

$5,000 to $9,999 Friend
$10,000 to $24,999 Partner
$25,000 to $49,999 Benefactor
$50,000 and above Visionary

Domingo de  Episcopal Charities

El Domingo de Episcopal Charities fue creada por el obispo Frade para dar a Caridades Episcopales la oportunidad de hablar con cada congregación cada año sobre el alcance y el trabajo que nosotros y nuestras 76 congregaciones estamos haciendo para ayudar a los necesitados en nuestra diócesis.

Episcopal Charities comenzaron en 1998 como una asociación entre las Episcopal Charities y nuestras congregaciones que proporcionen el ministerio de alcance y además asistencia financiera y técnica.
Nuestra sociedad requiere tanto de Episcopal Charities y de nuestras congregaciones que trabajen juntas con las  familias necesitadas, niños y ancianos en nuestras comunidades. ¡Y funciona! En asociación, las iglesias han proporcionado más de 1,5 millones de comidas, comidas de bolsas, artículos de despensa de alimentos y mochilas cada año a personas que tienen hambre. También apoyamos a 13 programas que atienden a los inmigrantes y las personas sin hogar, incluyendo refugios y viviendas familiares de transición.

Desde el año 2000, más de 900 jóvenes han recibido atención después de la escuela y otros programas juveniles apoyada por Episcopal Charities. Apoyamos tres centros de actividades mayores alrededor de la diócesis y un programa de VIH / SIDA en Coconut Grove.

Qué maravilloso, Ana Frank escribió, "lo maravilloso que es que nadie tenga que esperar un momento antes de empezar a mejorar el mundo".

Somos un equipo, Episcopal Charities y nuestras congregaciones, ya través de nuestros viajes y de nuestros esfuerzo juntos en ese lugar donde Dios nos llama a ser comunidad, ese lugar donde su profunda alegría y profundo de hambre se encuentran en el mundo.
Estamos llamados a ser Cristo en el mundo y ver a Cristo en cada persona. A través de sus ministerios de haber oído la voz de Cristo.

Por favor, ofrécete para ser sede un domingo de Episcopal Charities en su congregación para ello ponerse en contacto con Bonnie Weaver en bonnie@ecsefl.org o 561-308-3742.
