The St. Clare of Assisi Fund is used for women and children in the United States experiencing major financial need with the collection date set on or near her Feast Day (August 11th).

The Mary Magdalene Fund supports the operations, work, and mission of The Episcopal Community. The name of the Fund was chosen because Mary Magdalene was the first to spread the news of the Risen Christ. Funds may be used to provide services, materials, and communications that exceed the regular budget; to help with expenses of providing retreats, workshops and annual meetings; to defray costs of providing services at General Convention of The Episcopal Church, and to help provide operational needs. Although donations may be made at any time, the major ingathering date is Easter. Donations may be made in honor of or in remembrance of a person important to the donor. Names of those so honored are listed on the website of The Episcopal Community.
The Naomi Fund assists members who because of medical situations, nursing home residency, loss of job, loss of home, or difficult life situations are not able to pay their dues. No woman should have to give up her active membership and participation in The Episcopal Community because of lack of funds. The ingathering date for this Fund is Mother’s Day since many of these women have been spiritual mothers to other women through the years. The name of the fund honors the love and support of Naomi and Ruth for each other through difficult times.
Donations may be made to these funds via PayPal or by sending by sending a check to:
The Episcopal Community, PO Box 242, Sewanee, TN 37375
