What We Fund

Our vision is to become a philanthropic grant-making foundation that focuses on preserving the conservative roots of the universal values.

Our mission

  • To conserve the roots of the Christian faith

  • To preserve universal values given by God to humanity

  • To inspire fellow believers

  • To restore the power of love

We support the fields that align with our mission.

Comparative Research on Faith & Religion

We conduct and fund comparative research and communication in Religions between East and West in order to promote cross-cultural understanding of faith and belief systems. We are especially interested in research that results in practical methods that can guide believers to take action.

Research & Practice of Universal Values

We fund research into and practice universal values in today’s public sphere, conserving the values of love, fairness, justice, freedom, and responsibility, which we believe are the bedrock of society.

Conservation of Tangible and Intangible Heritage and Tradition

We fund research into and conservation of traditional heritage and values, including rehabilitating buildings of historical interest, educational activities, and projects that preserve Eastern and Western traditional values.

What We Care About

We are deeply concerned about the current faultlines in our society. In today’s world, “freedom and equality” has lost its foundational basis of “love and responsibility.” Our understanding that freedom comes with responsibility has been replaced with the hedonistic, unending pursuit of “freedom to fulfill every desire without limits.” “Love, fairness and justice” has been replaced by hatred based on group identities and identity politics. The pursuit of truth has been abandoned, with people defining “good” and “evil” depending on group identities manufactured by the media.

Our Granting Strategy

For grassroots organizations, DAF adopts a granting strategy of trust-based philanthropy, simplifies the red tape as much as possible in the early stages of the organization’s development, and focuses on providing unrestricted funds. Besides the financial aid, DAF provides capacity building to support the grassroot organizations and promote their growing sustainability. For staffed organizations, DAF requires that organizations meet higher requirements in project management and reports in order to qualify for our restricted fund.
