Legal Defense Fund for Orthodox [Episcopal] Parishes
Stand Firm ^ | 1/15/2007 | Jackie Bruchi

Several commenters have requested information on how they can assist Orthodox parishes in the legal battles 815 is bringing (or will bring). Hopefully this information will be of assistance to any who want to help. While we pray the legal fund will not be needed, 815 has made their intentions clear and like the Boy Scouts it's best "to be prepared."

The American Anglican Council can handle contributions to the Legal Defense Fund for orthodox Episcopal/Anglican churches under threat. Here are instructions and some details.

There are several ways to contribute:

Contribute by Credit Card

Select Contribute from the AAC Home Page; this option does not allow for specifying the group of churches you want to help
Call the AAC Office and make a credit card donation by speaking with staff; this way you can share your concern for a group of churches you want to help.

Mail a Check to the AAC

On the memo line state that the contribution is for the Legal Defense Fund

If your intent is to support a particular group of churches, add that to the memo line

IRS Regulations

If it is important that your gift to the Legal Defense Fund is tax deductible, you cannot limit the distribution to a specific church
General contributions to the Legal Defense Fund are tax deductible

Criteria for Distribution of these Funds:

Legal expenses are likely to be significant. General distribution decisions will be made after consultation with the parishes being sued, by factoring in the urgency of the need for funding, and resources available to the congregations under threat.
