Episcopal Community Services Announces
The Warren Dunning Memorial
Social Justice Grant
Warren worked tirelessly over the years for ECS, for Jubilee Ministries, and in several other capacities, all in the service of serving the least, the last and the lonely. He modeled service to others for Christ. His death leaves a large hole in the life of our diocese, and to honor him ECS is developing this special grant in his memory.
This will be a three-year grant of up to $5,000 in the first year, with a reduction of $1,000 in each of the subsequent years. It is our hope that congregations will be able to develop longer-term, sustainable programs with this kind of support. We are planning to award one new grant each year.
ECS is once again participating in the Bishop's Annual Partnership Appeal this year and will dedicate all funds raised for ECS this year to the funding of this special grant. So please check the ECS box when you respond, knowing that you are honoring Warren and helping your neighbors. You may also donate to ECS through this website. See the "Make a Donation" buttons on either side of the top of this page. They will take you our area of PayPal's site.
The Board of Episcopal Community Services thanks you for your support and for all the work you all are doing to support the needy in your communities, in the name of Christ.
