The ASDF was established in 1979 with the goal to support the charitable purposes of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Newcastle. Over the years it has provided support to the Diocese to help pay for parish aid, youth work, education, provision of chaplaincies, ordination training and new ministry.
Our aim is to:
Provide a regular, consistent income to support the mission of the Diocese of Newcastle.
Provide individuals, parishes and Anglican entities with a range of investment products and services which meet their investment and operational needs.
Maintain the health and sustainability of the Fund, whilst complying with requirements of the regulatory authorities.
The ASDF is designed for investors wishing to support the Diocese in its mission whilst also receiving a financial return. The ASDF product offerings add value and reduce bank or building society costs.
Our investors receive competitive interest rates with all funds invested according to the ethical guidelines of the Anglican Church of Australia. Funds are also used to support loans made to Parishes and Anglican affiliated organisations at favourable interest rates.
Your investment helps us support the missional initiatives of the Diocese and provides a valuable contribution to our Anglican community.
