Episcopal Relief & Development Fund

Finding ways to serve others is a vital part of embracing and living out the St. Stephen’s purpose: to grow in God’s love and serving Christ in all people. We support the Episcopal Relief & Development Fund. 




Lord, when was it that We saw you hungry and gave you food? We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink? We saw you a stranger and welcomed you? We saw you sick and took care of you? We saw you in prison and visited you? “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” –Matthew 25:37-40 (NRSV)       

 DONATE to Episcopal Relief & Development

Episcopal Relief & Development is a compassionate response of the Episcopal Church to human suffering in the world. Hearing God’s call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being, Episcopal Relief & Development serves to bring together the generosity of Episcopalians and others with the needs of the world.

Episcopal Relief & Development faithfully administers the funds that it receives from the church and raises from other sources. It provides relief in times of disaster and promotes sustainable development by identifying and addressing the root causes of suffering.

Episcopal Relief & Development cherishes its partnerships within the Anglican Communion, with ecumenical bodies and with others who share a common vision for justice and peace among all people.    

Episcopal Relief & Development is focused on demonstrating a measurable and sustainable impact in three key program priorities:

  1. WOMEN: helping communities promote the rights of women and children;

  2. CHILDREN: supporting and protecting kids under age six so they reach appropriate health and developmental milestones;

  3. CLIMATE: working with families and communities to adapt to the effects of a rapidly changing climate.
