Dear Diakon Team,

My name is Stacy Klann, and I am the new Director of Advancement here at Diakon. My role is to identify opportunities to raise money for unfunded needs provided by the programs and services offered through Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries and Diakon Children, Family and Community Ministries.

I am learning there are so many amazing colleagues across Diakon doing incredibly inspiring work! I am humbled to have the honor of supporting our staff and programs to raise funds so we can continue the great strides we are making to improve the lives of children, youth and seniors in our communities.

I also realize that I need your partnership.

As you may know, we apply for many grants during the year to fund our programs. One of the questions funders sometimes ask is “What percentage of your employees support your organization?” This is where you can make an impact. It doesn’t matter how big your gift is — only that you participate! Every gift of every size helps. And when you give to our employee campaign, you are supporting the people you serve every day. I want to make it easy for you. There are a variety of ways you can donate to support the people we serve who need it the most.

Give online or make a pledge today!

I want to hear from you!

In the coming weeks, we plan to create a committee of staff members that will be “All In” employee-giving ambassadors who want to take part in creative ways to create giving opportunities with our staff members.

Thank you,

Stacy Klann

Director of Advancement

And I want to express my gratitude to those of you who have already generously donated to the Diakon communities and programs you feel connected to. I look forward to your continued partnership!
