With so much need in the world and so many organizations seeking to meet that need, what does ARDFC offer that is distinctive and worthy of support?

At the Anglican Relief & Development Fund Canada (ARDFC), we believe that Christ’s command to love our neighbours as ourselves is integrally linked to His commission to go into all the world and make disciples.

Outstanding leadership – ARDFC projects are select by a Canadian board – under the leadership of Bishop Charlie Masters – from a list of projects that have been vetted and approved by an international board of trustees. These trustees are all global Anglican leaders, including Baroness Caroline Cox, Archbishop Foley Beach, and six Global South Anglican Primates.

Global partnerships – Excellent global connections, through ARDF, allow us to identify projects initiated and undertaken by Global South dioceses seeking to meaningfully demonstrate the love of Christ in their communities.
Building discipleship – We support community-based projects that strengthen our church partners, incorporate evangelism and reflect Christ-centred values and worldview.

Careful stewardship – Project proposals are rigorously researched then reviewed by the Primates on ARDF’s board who select the projects ARDF will fund. Completed projects are careful followed-up to ensure the objectives were met.

Proven trusteeship – ARDFC was launched in the spring of 2010 and already, with God’s help and the generous support of people across Canada, we have been able to direct $180,000 to fund four projects on three continents. From the time the ARDF, our partner aid agency, was launched in 2004 through to the end of 2011, it had invested $4.9 million in 106 completed projects. In addition, the ARDF was able to send $1.5 million in emergency assistance to meet urgent disaster relief needs – winning the confidence and respect of Global South Anglican leaders.

Now, with the launch of ARDF-Australia, we are able to do even more to alleviate suffering and offer health, hope and dignity in Jesus’ name.
