The funding for ADF projects comes through payment of annual membership dues, endowments, and monetary gifts from individuals and organizations.
Request for agricultural assistance from ADF may come from missionaries in the field, from various organizations, and at times from foreign governments. Depending upon the particular request, ADF may send an individual or a small team to the area to determine the exact needs and how best to meet those needs. ADF then develops a plan that includes locating funds, materials, and volunteers.
Over the years, ADF has helped foster a number of state agricultural fellowships. ADF works closely with these fellowships as well as state conventions and local churches in coordinating agricultural mission work.
Through its history ADF has been blessed with the assistance of retired agricultural missionaries and generous agricultural practicioners who give of their time and money to support our projects.
