Give Through Service

ALDE relies not only on gifts to the Annual Fund and Endowment Fund, but also on the faithful guidance and support of its many members. Nearly 20 percent of members serve ALDE in volunteer roles. Will you join them? It's an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth.

ALDE Annual Fund

The Annual Fund enables ALDE to pursue excellence beyond what dues cover.  Many employers cover ALDE dues and conference costs for members.  By making a personal gift to the Annual Fund, you honor the role ALDE has played in your professional life and help strengthen the organization for the benefit of others.

Your gift to the ALDE Annual Fund will fortify the overall organization in two important ways.

First, you will support the broad-based mission of the association by helping ALDE reach its goals to:

  • Provide educational opportunities responsive to member needs
  • Promote professionalism in development
  • Recruit and retain a growing, capable and diverse membership
  • Enhance the image, visibility and reputation of ALDE

Second, your gift will allow a greater number of people to attend the ALDE IGNITE International Conference.  Annual fund gifts expand the number of conference scholarships available for first-time and need-based attendees.

ALDE Cutting Edge Endowment Fund

Your investment in the ALDE Endowment Fund permits you to share in the future of a vibrant, responsive organization that will continue to meet the needs of Christian development professionals for years to come.

The purpose of the Endowment Fund is to build an asset base in perpetuity and make a 4 percent annual distribution to be used for educational opportunities for the membership.  Endowment Fund earnings will be used for priorities established by the ALDE Board to strengthen the mission of the organization. Fund earnings will:

  • Provide support for new projects and opportunities.
  • Allow startup financing for new initiatives.  Inspiration and ingenuity are the key to growth in any organization
  • Sustain a legacy of learning for the education and support of development professionals

Membership dues alone cannot begin to fund the long-range needs of our organization - the essentials our members demand to enhance the profession.  The same commitment to excellence we enjoy today will be perpetuated for a new generation of ALDE members.
