Giving to the Living Church Foundation

Give, and it shall be given unto you.” —Luke 6:38

The Living Church Foundation Inc., is an independent, nonprofit ministry devoted to seeking and serving the full, visible unity of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, within the Episcopal Church and the global Anglican Communion.

The mission of the Living Church has remained constant since our founding in 1878: we seek to sow seeds of reconciliation and renewal through the printed word and by teaching the Christian faith with energy and zeal.

We are more than a magazine. In addition to the news, teaching, and cultural analysis found in THE LIVING CHURCH, our weblog, Covenant, reaches hundreds of thousands of Anglicans worldwide with a team of evangelical and catholic writers. We offer several resources for the worship and prayer life of the Church: The Episcopal Musician’s Handbook, a guide to hymn selection in harmony with the liturgical seasons; Illuminations, a lector’s aid for Sunday worship; and Daily Devotionals, spiritual commentary on the Daily Office readings. We are creating new resources for Christian education as well, and our staff is often on the road to host conferences, lead workshops, and consult. Your gift to the Living Church Foundation serves the revitalization and faith of the Church. Our ministries touch hundreds of thousands of lives each year.

We could not go on without your faithful support. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and your donations are fully tax-deductible. We provide many ways to give to the Living Church Foundation:

  • The Living Church Partners are parishes, dioceses, seminaries, and other institutions that generously support our work. We list our Partners in every issue, and higher giving levels receive annual columns to describe their work.
  • The Living Church Annual Fund is an important way for many of our readers to support our ministry. Only 70 percent of the cost of publishing TLC is covered by subscriptions and advertising. For the rest, we count on contributions from readers like you.
  • The Living Church Endowment Fund provides a perpetual source of support for our many publications and initiatives. Our endowment is professionally managed by State Street and overseen by our board, with careful policies and guidelines available to our donors. We especially welcome planned gifts through your will, and naming opportunities are available.
