ACF Logo Transition

It's a New Day! ALDE is Now ACF!

We are excited to announce that ALDE is now the Association for Christian Fundraising (ACF). We have a renewed focus to provide a collegial setting and Christian perspective for professionals working in fundraising and related fields. We aspire to be the primary resource for those who value and have an affinity for the practice of fundraising through the lens of Christian values for nonprofit organizations, and those complementary businesses that support them. Please watch the video for the full announcement from ACF Executive Director Laurie Brill.

Our Faith & Fundraising Conference will keep the same name and logo, but with new colors to reflect the connection between ACF and the event. We look forward to seeing you in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, February 26-29, 2024.

Rekindled to Respond - From Crisis to Unprecedented Growth
Webinar - October 5

Beth Nelson Chase and Andrew Steele

When the humanitarian crisis unfolded after the Taliban takeover of Kabul, Afghanistan, in August 2021, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) was once again a leader in refugee resettlement across the United States. Over the course of just a few months, LIRS resettled more than 14,000 Afghans who arrived in the U.S. for protection and safety. LIRS witnessed an outpouring of support and an unprecedented time of giving, especially with a surge of first-time major donors. This session will highlight how earned media, social media, and new and creative ways of communication and stewardship led to unprecedented levels of giving that have continued. Learn more and RSVP.
