EPF Granted Lilly Endowment Award

| Posted: September 7, 2022

In July, the EPF received a nearly $48,000 Phase 1 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. as part of their Compelling Preaching Initiative, to fund the development of a multiyear grant proposal for a sustainable program to elevate and support compelling preaching in the Episcopal Church. A comprehensive study is now in the field to provide background data on clergy and lay leaderships’ attitudes toward preaching, the current state of ministry, and support needs in the current environment. A grant proposal is planned for late summer and Lilly Endowment anticipates announcing grants toward the end of 2022.
