Hope for Humanity

Our Mission

Hope for Humanity is a relationship-building ministry that engages Adventist members with their communities for the purposes of creating awareness of the work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and raising funds for the support of Seventh-day Adventist compassionate ministries in North America and the world.

How We Serve

  • We develop, produce, and distribute resources free of charge to churches for use in promoting and implementing the Hope for Humanity mission.
  • We facilitate the support of a variety of compassionate ministries with emphasis on initiatives that engage Adventist members in personal wholistic ministry. 
    • Approximately 80% of the funds raised are used to support ministries of compassion in the North American Division and 20% are used in collaboration with our overseas partners. The approximate breakdown is as follows:
      • 50%     To local conferences — supports church-based and/or conference-wide initiatives as determined by the conference
      • 10%     To NAD Adventist Community Services — supports church-based community service projects in North America
      • 20%     To NAD Hope for Humanity — supports initiatives in North America that have been identified as a priority. Currently the Guam-Micronesia Mission has been identified as the priority to receive the largest portion of this funding group.        
      • 20%     To NAD Hope for Humanity — supports the NAD Partners in Mission initiative in which projects are implemented by NAD’s sister divisions in collaboration with the NAD. For the past several years, adult literacy has been the focus of this initiative which has resulted in 200,000 learners receiving the gift of literacy.
