The Orchard Foundation and The Alliance Development Fund, Inc. Are Now One Organization


Colorado Springs, Colo.  The Orchard Foundation and The Alliance Development Fund, Inc. (ADF) are now serving the Kingdom together as one organization: Orchard Alliance. Prior to joining forces, Orchard and ADF had worked together for several decades. The organizations have also shared the same president, Larry McCooey, for nearly 10 years. As separate ministries, Orchard provided stewardship and planned giving services and ADF supplied investment options and ministry loans to the U.S. Christian and Missionary Alliance.

As a new, combined ministry, Orchard Alliance offers churches, individuals, families, and other like-minded organizations a wide range of products and services. These include everything from charitable gift annuities, donor advised funds, trusts, and endowments to church financing, project advisement, and investment and retirement products.

“With more than six decades of history, we are deeply rooted in serving the Kingdom,” said McCooey. “By coming together as Orchard Alliance, we combine our individual strengths and grow in our ability to serve God’s Kingdom. Bringing these two organizations together has been on our hearts and minds for many years, so we are excited to see it come to fruition after years of prayerful planning. We look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for this next chapter in our ministry.”

About Orchard Alliance

Orchard Alliance is a nonprofit ministry with nearly $400 million in assets, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was formed in 2018 as a result of 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 40 years under The Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination—with Orchard serving as The Alliance’s planned giving provider and ADF as the official securities program and lending arm. Today, these two ministries are Serving the Kingdom Together as Orchard Alliance, a robust financial stewardship ministry that provides charitable giving instruments and estate design services as well as investment products and church financing.
