Resources for Alliance Churches

As a supporting organization of The Alliance, Orchard Alliance provides lending products, capital project advisement, investment and retirement products, planned giving and estate design services, and training in stewardship and generosity from a biblical perspective.

ABOUT ORCHARD

Orchard Alliance was formed in 2018 by bringing together two long-standing, like-minded ministries - The Orchard Foundation (Orchard) and The Alliance Development Fund, Inc. (ADF). Prior to 2018, the two ministries worked in partnership for more than 60 years under The Alliance - with Orchard serving as The Alliance's planned giving provider and ADF serving as the official securities program and lending arm.

In addition to serving The Alliance family, Orchard Alliance serves more than 50 like-minded ministry partners, including rescue missions, Christian higher education institutions, mission sending organizations, and youth-focused ministries. Click here to learn more about Orchard Alliance.
