Episcopal Relief & Development

Working Together for Lasting Change

Episcopal Relief & Development works with partners worldwide to create lasting change in communities struggling with hunger, poverty, disaster and disease. ERD is committed to demonstrating a measurable impact in three transformative program priorities: Women, Children and Climate.

Mission Statement

Episcopal Relief & Development is the compassionate response of The Episcopal Church to human suffering in the world. Hearing God’s call to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being, Episcopal Relief & Development serves to bring together the generosity of Episcopalians and others with the needs of the world.

Episcopal Relief & Development faithfully administers the funds that it receives from the church and raises from other sources. It provides relief in times of disaster and promotes sustainable development by identifying and addressing the root causes of suffering.

Episcopal Relief & Development cherishes its partnerships within the Anglican Communion, with ecumenical bodies and with others who share a common vision for justice and peace among all people.
