Information for Schools

Another year seems to be passing by quickly, and the end of the school year will be upon us before we know it.

The ADF has prepared a checklist of things to consider in relation to schools accounts, products and services with the ADF in readiness for the end of this year and the commencement of next year.

If schools require any assistance in relation to any of the checklist items, they are invited to contact their Relationship Manager.

New Website Launch

After a period of internal consultation and review, the ADF is proud to launch our new website.

We’ve tried our best to include all the most relevant information for our customers but no website is perfect. If you experience any issues, have any feedback, or would like to make any suggestions, please let us know at

After many years of service the previous website has been consigned to the recycle bin. Here it is, for anyone who would like one last look just for nostalgia’s sake.

ADF Online Update

The Archdiocesan Development Fund is pleased to announce the upgrade of ADF Online.

The benefits to you will include:

  • New look and feel
  • Improved transaction search functionality
  • Increased file upload capacity

The upgrade was undertaken on Saturday 18th July 2015.

Thank you for your continued support of the Archdiocesan Development Fund.

2016 DDR Preparation

The ADF has started preparing direct debit forms for 2016. We’re looking to introduce editable PDFs this year so that parents can type in the details and then print the form for signing. This will help to eliminate any scanning errors during the ADF’s data upload process.

In order to allow parents to fill out these forms they will need to be emailed rather than posted to parents. We will provide further details on this process change later in the year.

We’re very excited about these changes. Stay tuned for further information.

Electronic ADF Forms

The ADF is looking to introduce forms that you can fill in online and email back to us. This is an exciting new development to help improve accuracy and should help everyone interested in relying less on paper.

If you have any feedback on this initiative, whether to tell us you think it’s a terrible idea or a great one, or to flag any issues you think we need to be aware of while introducing this change, we would love to hear from you.
