An Effective Development Model
Assess. Partner. Transform.

Through ARDF, you support leaders working with Anglican Churches around the globe. Your dollars go only to projects that have been desired, developed, and designed by the local community and every project proposal undergoes thorough research by an independent third-party to ensure that it will be effective and sustainable over the long term.

Timely Relief Efforts

ARDF also supports local churches serving their communities after a crisis. We commit resources and connect volunteers to trainings and opportunities to serve. We also stand by our partners for the long-haul, knowing that the impact of a disaster always outlives the world's attention.

Mission statement

ARDF strengthens communities by coming alongside the local church through small, community-based development and relief projects.
