"Victory Comes Down to a Matter of Supplies."

–Alan Sears, ADF Founder

More than twenty-five years ago...

...more than 30 Christian leaders came together to found Alliance Defending Freedom to keep the doors open for the Gospel and to protect your right to freely live out your faith. Over the years, ADF has been blessed with a rich history of commitment to living out the Gospel and serving God and the Body of Christ to preserve our God-given freedoms for generations to come.

As part of that commitment, after years of prayer and intensive planning, the ADF Governing Board of Directors approved the launch of the ADF Foundation ("Foundation") in 2016. The mission of the Foundation is to build and manage an endowment for the ministry of ADF, to ensure that it can remain strong to advocate for religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family. As God blesses this endowment, ADF will have more financial security, flexibility, and means to maintain its operations and respond to opportunities without impacting the annual budget or needed reserves. What does this mean for you, our dearest ministry friends? It means that you can direct future donations to ADF Foundation, to support ADF through a long-term commitment to the mission and programs of ADF.

As ADF Founder Alan Sears reminds us, "Victory comes down to a matter of supplies." While we know that only through dependence on Christ (John 15:5) can we achieve ultimate victory, it is critical for ADF to have adequate supplies for the battle, as no army has ever emerged victorious by sitting on the sidelines. As Alan has said, "For too long, we lost by default, by not showing up with the resources needed to win." The objective of the ADF Foundation is to ensure that the pipeline of supplies remains fully filled, so ADF can remain engaged for victory to keep the doors open for the Gospel.
