There are many Anglican churches in the poorest and most threatened parts of the world. Often the church is the only stable, functioning organisation in the area.
The Anglican Communion Fund (ACF) was created for the benefit of churches and provinces around the Anglican Communion, and to support the international ministry of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
It does this principally through grants. This year we committed over £500,000 to projects in more than 20 countries, as well as funding Anglican representatives whose advocacy roles have a global reach.
Over the next three years the ACF aims to develop strategic partnerships with up to six provinces in the Communion. This will be in addition to supporting individual projects.
These partnerships will give provinces a more comprehensive view of the support available and enable them to plan significant investment in their churches and communities.
