2024 ECD Membership

Membership is open to anyone interested in supporting the Episcopal Church's ministry with Deaf and hard-of-hearing people.  Membership in the Episcopal Conference of the Deaf is $30.00 (per calendar year) before February 29th.  A $5.00 late fee is applied after March 1st.  

The ECD has been the only and oldest organization within The Episcopal Church, supporting ministry among Deaf people and people with significant hearing loss in the last 143 years.  Your membership, advocacy, and financial support are essential to our efforts.  You can also contribute a tax-deductible donation beyond the standard annual fee, which will support the new ECD outreach ministry.

Regardless of how much you plan to contribute, you are automatically a member of the ECD, and you will be recognized in the newsletter and the end-of-year annual report.  With that membership, you receive great benefits, which include:

  • Quarterly publications of The Deaf Episcopalian newsletter

  • Weekly or monthly email subscriptions

  • Reduced admission fees to camps, conventions, and workshops

  • Exclusive voting rights

  • Grants related to the Deaf Ministry

  • Travel with ECD Holy Land Pilgrimage in 2025 with ASL Interpreters

  • Free tuition to enroll in Education of Ministry in ASL

  • And many more are coming soon!

The Episcopal Conference of the Deaf will continue to partner with the diocese to advocate the existing Deaf ministries, help build new ones, and provide interpreting and other services for Deaf seminarians and Deaf people attending the General Conventions of the Episcopal Church. 


Don't hesitate to contact our ECD Membership Secretary at membership@ecdeaf.org if you have any questions.

Please pay your membership dues when you have finished filling out the membership form.  You are not a member until the ECD has received your dues.
