Thank you, Donors!
One of the most important activities of the Episcopal Church Club of Philadelphia is our scholarship program, which grants financial aid on the basis of need to seminarians from the Diocese of Pennsylvania.
For the academic year 2017-2018, awards totaling $27,000.00 have been granted to eight postulants. Cumulatively since the program began in 1989, we have awarded $319,700 to 86 postulants!
Our beneficiaries are divinity students who will go on to become Episcopal priests. Many of the postulants we have supported are now serving in our Diocese. Thus, the beneficiaries of the Scholarship Fund are not only the seminarians who will be our future clergy, but also those whom they will serve in their ministries.
Thanks to all the members of the ECCP, their parishes, and deaneries within the Diocese of Pennsylvania, who have so generously given to the Scholarship Fund! As of May 14, the 2017-2018 fundraising campaign has brought in more than $22,000.00!
