[August 10, 2021] During the past five years, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made cash and in-kind donations totaling more than $1 million to Episcopal Migration Ministries, impacting thousands of lives. This year’s gift was $297,000.
“We are deeply grateful and give thanks to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for their continued support and dedication to this life-saving program and vital ministry of the church,” said the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church.
The Latter-day Saints’ financial and in-kind support—which totals $1,157,680.48 since 2016—has allowed Episcopal Migration Ministries to offer grants to its affiliate partners to directly help refugee clients affected physically or economically by the COVID-19 pandemic.
