Stacey Kromer

Stacey Kromer is a native of Jefferson City, Missouri, and believes that her upbringing in this community contributed toward her values, beliefs and work ethic. She has been a vital part of the Vitae team since 2003. Stacey was named a vice president in 2007 and has concentrated on fundraising and development of a large portion of the United States. The Dallas/Fort Worth media market has become a second home of sorts, where she has raised funds to implement traditional media campaigns (television and billboards) and helped maintain a year-round Internet presence for the last five years. These campaigns have resulted in over 10,000 contacts to Pregnancy Help Centers. Because Vitae’s mission is Stacey’s passion, she has earnestly strived to raise the greatest amount of funds possible to purchase the most effective media campaigns available. Over the last eight years she has raised over $6 million, a remarkable accomplishment achieved by only a few seasoned fundraisers.

Before coming to Vitae Stacey worked in sports marketing for over 15 years at Learfield Communications, the sports marketing powerhouse who was responsible for getting the first Vitae ads aired through the Missouri Tiger Football and Basketball Radio Network. Her career at Vitae began as the event coordinator and as her passion grew, so did her duties. She was soon named the event director and over the course of her employment, Stacey has been promoted a number of times.

While working in the events department, Kromer integrated new ideas and organizational techniques to improve the events’ fundraising potential and professional appearance. Over a dozen events per year where hosted in Missouri. In 2004, she logged over 22,000 miles traveling the highways and byways of Missouri. Soon we grew beyond our Missouri borders to include community events and home gatherings in Dallas; Seattle; Washington, D.C.; Orange County, California; and Philadelphia.

Seeing her potential to excel in fundraising and leadership, Vitae sent her to the nationally recognized Institute of Charitable Giving seminars: The Art of Asking and Seize the Opportunity. Those learning opportunities helped propel her to become the exceptional fundraising professional that she is today. Stacey attended Jefferson City High School and graduated in the top 4 percent out of 594 students. From high school, she furthered her education at University of Central Missouri. She is married and considers her husband and family to be her life’s biggest achievements

  • Getting the verbiage right is vital. The money Vitae is investing makes us go a lot further, to the point that we’re a huge annoyance to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and NARAL Pro-Choice Washington.

  • For any pregnancy center serious about reaching, engaging, and supporting abortion-minded women, familiarity with the research and messaging strategies produced by Vitae is essential.

  • My abortion was not about birth control—it was about fear. Fear of ruining my current reputation and future dreams. Fear of people finding out I wasn’t a “good” girl. Someone finally understood why I had an abortion and had research to support it!

    Georgette Forney, Silent No More
  • The masters of media are the people defining the moral value system…that is why what you’re doing [Vitae Foundation] is of such vital importance. You are saving lives.

    Oliver North, U.S. Marine (Ret.), Author, Fox News Correspondent
  • The Vitae Foundation is at the forefront of where this movement needs to go, and I really applaud you. You’re changing minds, you’re changing hearts, and the world is a better place for your vision.

    Sean Hannity, TV Host
  • Everybody should ask this question: If you didn’t show up, who would miss you and why? If Vitae hadn’t shown up, think of the babies today who would not be here if it weren’t for them. That’s the greatest contribution we could make to our fellow human beings.

    Lou Holtz, Former Coach - Notre Dame Football
