Donation Funds

Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship (ADF) is an international Neopagan church devoted to creating a public tradition of Druidry. Our members are attempting to revive the best aspects of the Paleopagan faiths of our ancestors within a modern spiritual, scientific, artistic, ecological, and holistic context. Our Motto: Why not excellence?

The following describes the different "funds" or "targets" you specify a donation to be directed toward. You can donate to ADF when you joinrenew, or at any other time you like. Thank you for helping us make the Vision of Our Druidry a reality!

Note: ADF is a 501(c)3 religious organization, so your greatly appreciated donation will be tax-deductible in the U.S. If you plan to claim such a deduction, please save your receipt of the donation.

ADF Cares

  • An ongoing project for assisting those of natural disasters. In 2005, $500 was raised and donated to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.

Arch Druid Travel Fund

  • This fund is to assist in covering the time and effort spent as ADF's Religious Leader and for travel expenses.

Bard Laureate Travel Fund

Clergy Travel Fund

  • This fund is to assist in the travel expense for the clergy members to attend organized retreats by the clergy council and events held by Groves.

Compassionate Membership Fund

  • This fund allows ADF to grant membership to individuals who are financially-challenged so severely that they cannot afford membership, but who feel the call of Our Druidry in their hearts and souls and request that we consider gifting them with a year of membership. If the Mother Grove determines that they are indeed unable to afford membership on their own, ADF will draw from the Compassionate Membership fund if possible in order to provide it to them for free.


  • This fund allows us to direct the funds where they are most needed and is thus where we would greatly prefer all donations to go. However, if you want your funds directed to a particular purpose instead, that's fine too—every little bit helps!

Sacred Center Fund

  • This fund encompasses the former land and building funds.

    • This is a collection of donations our members have contributed toward the dream of one day purchasing land for the members of ADF to hold rituals, build shrines to the Gods and spirits, and work and play together as we bring the Vision of Our Druidry to fruition for ourselves and our children. ADF currently uses whatever spaces we are able to rent or use from others, but it would be even better to someday own our own land dedicated 100% to the work of our Druidry in honoring the gods, ancestors, and spirits of nature.

    • Capital for designated projects to assist in the advancement of ADF.

Military Comradeship

  • Supplying deployed military personnel with 'pagan care packages' (ritual supplies, books, CD, etc).

Prison Ministry Fund

  • Project for supplying spiritual materials and books for incarcerated pagans.

Scholarship Fund

  • Promote education for our future Neopagan leaders by providing a scholarship to students who are pursuing a degree program from an accredited 2 or 4 year institution.
