Who We Are
The Church Foundation is a nonprofit whose primary purpose is to serve as trustee, custodian and investment adviser for assets owned by churches, chapels, missions and institutions in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania. That is who we are, and that is what we do -- but it only tells part of the story.
TCF works to build a financial platform that allows our clients to view the future with a sense of possibility, of potential to be explored. Our aim is that our partner churches and other institutions can chart a future with an eye towards thriving rather than just surviving.
TCF is also our people -- dedicated professionals who bring to bear TCF's strength and longevity while also being on a first-name basis with each of our clients here in Pennsylvania.
We've seen both financially peaceful turbulent times in our history, and as we navigate the current environment, we bring to our clients the stability and experience that can allow the flexibility to grow in new directions as is needed.
This may mean expanding online services, expanded outreach opportunities, more ways to care for your community, investing for future ideas -- from subtle shifts to moonshots, TCF is investing in the dreams of our churches and organizations in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.
