Matthew 25 Legacy Society


4ada254feb48a0098389c8a186226f2dWe are grateful to our Matthew 25 Legacy Society members, who sustain the work of Episcopal Relief & Development through planned gifts such as bequests, life income gifts and charitable trusts.

These gifts deepen and strengthen the work of Episcopal Relief & Development across the globe in a lasting and transformative way. Donations can be designated to our endowment for global needs, a specific program or a particular country. 

Planned gifts are what made it possible for us to create the U.S. Disaster Response Program and Preparedness Initiative. Through this effort, we are working with dioceses to increase their resilience and ability to recover quickly from disasters. The program is building a national volunteer and skills database called Ready to Serve, holding local and regional trainings, and helping dioceses with coordination and planning.

Please consider joining the Matthew 25 Legacy Society.  Contact us at or 1.855.312.HEAL (4325).
