Supporters of Episcopal Relief & Development can double the impact of their donations during the organization’s year-end Hope Match Campaign. From November 8 until December 31, qualifying contributions will be matched up to $750,000.

Gifts to the Episcopal Relief & Development Hope Match Campaign will benefit the Global Needs Fund–a critical resource used to promote the health and wellbeing of children, facilitate activities that lead to women’s empowerment and help communities adapt to climate change.

Contributions to the Hope Match Campaign will help continue Episcopal Relief & Development’s asset-based approach to creating sustainable solutions around the world, including:

  • Supporting parents and caregivers in Ghana to help young children thrive
  • Training faith leaders in Burundi to help end gender-based violence in their communities
  • Equipping farmers in Honduras with climate-resilient farming techniques

“At Episcopal Relief & Development, our work around the world relies on partnerships. Together with local leaders, community-based organizations and generous donors, we’re creating real, lasting change that makes a tangible difference in people’s lives, families and communities,” said Xerxes Eclipse, Director, Donor Services, Episcopal Relief & Development. “I’m proud of, and deeply grateful for, our amazing donors. This year, I’m excited that through the Hope Match Campaign, their generosity will automatically be doubled!”

Contributions made to Episcopal Relief & Development before the end of the year are eligible for matching, including Gifts for Life, and direct contributions online, over the phone, or by mail. Gifts of stocks, Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) and from Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) are also included in the Hope Match Campaign.

Donors wishing to take advantage of the dollar-for-dollar match should give their gift between now and December 31. Donate online or call 1.855.312.4325. Gifts can also be mailed to Episcopal Relief & Development, PO Box 3006, Harlan, IA 51593-0024.
