Transforming the lives of those in need.


Episcopal Charities provides critical funding, operational support and volunteers to strengthen nearly 100 local programs working to transform the lives of more than 1 million people in need each year.

Working in partnership with these programs, we help connect those in need with the generosity of caring donors and the energy of dedicated volunteers.

In the true spirit of outreach, every program we support is free of religious content, welcoming one and all. We serve communities throughout the ten-county Episcopal Diocese of New York: Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Sullivan, Orange and Ulster. See a map of all our programs here.


We Support Parishes and Programs

We enhance efforts to serve more people in better and more meaningful ways by providing programs with empowering training opportunities and as-needed operational assistance. Grantees are required to attend our Sustainability Institute Workshops that provide program directors with expert-led training and peer-to-peer networking opportunities. Learn more about our impact and read stories of hope and transformation from the field.



Episcopal Charities was founded in 1996 with the bold objective of being a leader at identifying and addressing acute needs in New York City and seven counties in the Hudson Valley, while bringing transparency and professionalism to charitable giving associated with the Diocese of New York.


Since then, we have granted more than $25 million to local programs and to those introduced to us through the parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of New York serving people in need.


All of this is made possible by generous individuals, foundations. other organizations and corporations that share our commitment to caring.

Please join us.
