The Episcopal Presbyterian Health Trust

The purpose of the Episcopal Presbyterian Health Trust (formerly Episcopal-Presbyterian Charitable Health & Medical Trust) is to provide health care and medical services to indigent people, primarily those who live in the City of St. Louis, Missouri, or immediately adjacent areas. The Trust makes responsive grants based on requests from area health care providers seeking critical dollars to expand services, model new approaches to health care delivery, or to build collaborations.

The Episcopal Presbyterian Health Trust (EPHT) is a nonprofit, grantmaking foundation established in 1985 as a joint healthcare mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, the Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy, and St. Luke’s Hospital. The Trust has made in excess of $5 million in grants to nonprofit healthcare organizations serving the needs of underinsured and uninsured patients in the St. Louis region.

The ministry of the Trust is exemplified through the investments it makes: there are large grants aimed at creating systemic change while a grant program for smaller organizations is intended to support a health ministry for underserved populations.
