Why Contribute to the Fund?
Most Episcopal Deacons serve (or are retired) as non-stipendiary ministry leaders in the Church. Deacons tend to lack church pensions, or may not have adequate savings from secular work, to draw upon in times of crisis. The Fund for the Diaconate provides vital financial assistance to those who've served others and the Church. In a typical year, we pay over $110,000 to anywhere from eight to twelve deacons, to help pay for medical and living expenses.
