Founding Members Form

On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew Foundation (EPBF), I greet you in joy and thank you sincerely for participating as a Founding Member in this watershed initiative of the Order of St. Andrew the Apostle. 


You have demonstrated your deep faith, hope and enlightenment by taking action.  You are “doers of the Word.”  Your love, zeal and support of our dear worldwide Spiritual Father, the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the sacred mission strengthen our individual and collective focus to provide for the security and support of the Mother Church, sustaining our being and spiritual existence.


We are enhancing the EPBF website which shall include a listing of its Founding Members.  It has been suggested that along with the name(s) of each Founding Member, a single photograph of the donor(s), the name, city/state of the Greek Orthodox Church worshipped at and the city/state residency of the donor(s) be included.  Although biographical information may not be included in the publishing, it would be appreciative if you provide also a brief one paragraph bio of yourself (yourselves).  Additionally, please offer one or two sentences as why you decided to become a Founding Member of the EPBF.


We are blessed by the inspiring leadership of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros and together with our Archbishop, we eagerly look forward to the Founding Members being in the presence of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in New York City in late October.


May the Grace of our Lord and Saviour be with you and your loved ones always.

  • In case we need to reach you.
  • A short one or two biographical paragraph on the donor(s).
  • One or two sentences on why you became a Founding Member.
  • If a single donor, pictured from the waist up. If a couple donor, pictured closely together from the waist up (not two separate photos). Attire is preferably in business or business-smart.
