Trinity Church Wall Street seeks to help our partners in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion build financial sustainability for ministry through the creative development of assets. Trinity supports this work primarily through grants, training, and real estate advisory services for Anglican/Episcopal provinces, dioceses, and seminaries throughout Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Asia.
Over two half-days of interactive workshops, panels, and small-group discussions, we deepened our understanding of financial sustainability through mission real estate development, learning from each other and from Trinity’s experience developing real estate to support ministry work.
Mission Real Estate Development grants are available to support feasibility studies and construction/business projects that will generate income for ministry.
Professional assessments of multiple income-generation project opportunities that help the recipient diocese/institution to identify an investment that will suit their market, experience, and financing.

Construction/business projects that will serve a primary purpose of generating income for the recipient diocese or institution. The most common real estate business models pursued by our partners include office; retail; multifamily and student housing; hospitality and conferencing; and schools.
