Virtual Tribute Dinner 2020:
Responding to the Call
Episcopal Charities’ Virtual Tribute Dinner: #RespondingToTheCall is an opportunity to celebrate the work of outreach programs throughout the Diocese of New York, especially in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. This virtual fundraiser will take place on Thursday, November 19th, at 8 pm, during which we’ll hear from those involved at these transformative programs, see performances by Episcopal Charities-sponsored children’s choirs, and hear from some very special guests.
Operating in ten counties and in a variety of social areas, Episcopal Charities funds non-sectarian programs that speak to the dignity of every human person.
Episcopal Charities mobilized in just 14 days to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, awarding its first grant on April 3rd.
Episcopal Charities currently funds 100 transformative programs, from soup kitchens to summer camps, shelters for refugees, and support for immigrants and the incarcerated.
In addition to funding, Episcopal Charities provides holistic resources to promote programmatic sustainability, including volunteers, webinars and seminars from experts,
100% of every donation goes towards funding these crucial programs, not overhead costs.
Episcopal Charities funds programs in ten counties: Bronx, Dutchess, New York, Orange, Putnam, Richmond (Staten Island), Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester Counties.
In 2020, Episcopal Charities-sponsored programs have served more than 4 million duplicated individuals.
