Diocesan Trustees

The Trustees are responsible for the investment management of endowment funds of the Diocese and funds derived from parishes receiving aid or extinct parishes. The Trustees may, on request, assume investment management of other funds, including other Diocesan funds, and funds of parishes, parish organizations, and other not-for-profit organizations affiliated with the Episcopal Church, through the Joint Investment Fund, now valued at over $32 million. They may hold title to the property of an imperiled parish as well as other diocesan property. The trustees also maintain custody of the funds for the endowment of the episcopate. There are 5 diocesan trustees. They meet quarterly and are available at other times as necessary.
