If you would like to donate to support the refugee relief efforts underway, Episcopal Charities recommends donations be made to Episcopal Relief and Development, which is coordinating responses with other parts of the Anglican Communion and with other agencies.

Some have written to ask whether we are holding investments in Russia in the Diocesan Investment Trust (DIT). The Diocesan Investment Trust owns no Russian securities directly, and funds that match indices that include Russian Securities are being restructured by their sponsoring organizations to exclude them.

Ed Biddle, our new CFO who is currently working with Dennis Burton on a leadership transition, is available to discuss your questions about these exposures.
