AHDAF is in need of conscious donors and stewards to help us continue our work in the Holy Land. To be a responsible donor, here are some guidelines and directions on how to support us.
Pray before giving. No gift is as powerful as one that is thought through and sent with a prayer. This will also help you determine what you want to donate for.
Contact us with any questions. If you have questions or concerns about how your donation will be used, or have a specific request that it be used a certain way, let us know. We feel it is always important for our Find the best way to donate.
AHDAF is able to receive donations through individuals, families, organizations and parishes. We can accept wire transfers, cheques and international money orders, as well as cash donations for people visiting the Holy Land. In general, we discourage physical donations of items being sent from abroad, as it is almost always more cost-effective to find the item here. However, if you have something that you feel is a worthwhile donation outside of a financial offering, let us know.
Let us know when and how the donation is coming. A simple email is fine.
Let us know what you need. We always send notices of donations received, but if you have specific requests for tax purposes or reporting your donation to a parish or organization, we will make it happen.
Be creative! There are many ways to give to AHDAF. Don’t let the distance of Bethlehem from your home, or any other limitations that you think are in your way prevent you from becoming a donor! Be creative and enjoy the act of giving to something that you believe in! As Corinthians 2 says, "God loves a cheerful giver".
We hope to have direct, online donations possible in the near future, but for the time being, you can send us a check by the following address:
Saint Martha’s House

And lastly, thank you.
By giving to AHDAF, you will be joining many wonderful people and organizations who are making a difference of the lives of people in Bethlehem. This is no small task, and you, as a donor and a friend, will be honored by AHDAF for your dedication, kindness and act of giving.
