The Episcopal Church Building Fund (ECBF) assists parishes and ministries by providing loans for projects based in real property. We invite applications for projects large and small.
We have a long history of serving Episcopal Church ministries. ECBF was founded in 1880 in response to the rapid expansion of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Over the course of these 140+ years, we have assisted in building new churches, helped congregations to grow, and provided guidance in opening church doors to important ministries. And when you borrow through ECBF, your interest payments are reinvested to support the critical, forward-thinking work of ECBF—and the growth of this church.

WHO QUALIFIES FOR ECBF LOANS?
ECBF loans are available for asset and property-based projects that are affiliated with the Episcopal Church, which include churches, schools, rectories and expansions of ministry projects.
WHAT KINDS OF PROJECTS QUALIFY?
ECBF loans finance a wide variety of capital projects, from renovations and repairs to updates and improvements to expansion projects—as well as the purchase of land and buildings, the construction of new buildings and accessibility projects. With Care of Creation a core mission priority, ECBF encourages projects that enhance a ministry’s energy efficiency—such as solar power and EV charging stations.
