Resources for Outreach Ministries

“For more than a decade, these two funds have provided financial resources that have been used to support a wide variety of congregational outreach ministries as well as to ensure the long-term growth and viability of DaySpring. This past year, the projects funded by Episcopal Charities grants included feeding ministries, community gardens, after school programs, laundry services for those in need, and so much more. The impact of these outreach initiatives quite literally reached from the northernmost part of our diocese in Brooksville to our southernmost region on Marco Island and everywhere in between. I encourage you to read the enclosed brochure to learn more about the transformational ministry that is occurring because of your generosity.” -Excerpt from Bishop Doug Scharf’s 2023 Appeal Letter.

Future gifts to Episcopal Charities will ensure that the diocese and our congregations continue their mercy in mission. Our Jubilee congregations and many others support ministries and advocacy for the poor–both in our diocese, in the Dominican Republic and throughout the world.
