Deaconess Foundation helps people in need build careers that sustain them and their families.

Who We Are

Deaconess Foundation is a private foundation committed to helping people in need build careers that sustain them and their families. We make grants to organizations and collaborate with others to strengthen employment in our community.

What We Hope

By supporting the individual organizations and contributing to the broader employment ecosystem, we aim to help develop  individuals to enter into and progress along career pathways.

Our Focus

We believe that employment is the mechanism through which individuals in our community can exit poverty. Our focus on employment addresses one of our region’s most pressing challenges and fills a unique niche in local philanthropy.
