Thank you for considering a donation to the Fund for the Diaconate. For the past several years, the Fund has been working more closely with our sister organization, the Association for Episcopal Deacons (AED). That work has included such activities as sharing the costs of a booth at General Convention, sending representatives to each other’s board meetings, and working in concert to explain the diaconate to the Church Pension Fund and others.
In 2016, the two groups agreed to hire The Cornerstone Group (led by Deacon Lisa Bennett) to do an analysis for a potential fund-raising campaign that would allow the Fund and AED to do more for deacons in The Episcopal Church. That report, which both boards accepted, recommended that the Fund concentrate on planned giving and large donations, and that AED concentrate on an annual campaign and increasing membership.
Legal name: The Fund for the Diaconate of The Episcopal Church
