How has The Fund helped deacons in need?
"I have been an active deacon since my ordination over twenty years ago. I am a grateful recipient of a supportive grant from the Fund for the Diaconate. My thanks to the Fund for the Diaconate and all that they do. With out them, I do not know what I would have done." ~ Deacon H., recipient of a General Grant
