The commitment and support by all members to the association has allowed for the establishment of the ADFIP Members’ Fund. On instruction from the ADFIP Annual General Meeting and following approval of the draft Memorandum and Articles of Association. ADFIP registered the ADFIP Members’ Fund with the Registrar of Companies in Fiji on 26 October 1993 under the name of ADFIP Trustee Limited. In 2002, the objective of setting up the FJD1million was achieved.
The setting up of the trust fund was for the express purpose of providing funds for the operating costs of the ADFIP Secretariat. It was initially intended that ADFIP would obtain donor funding to run the Secretariat. When funding was not forthcoming, members realized they must take alternative steps to acquire funds for this purpose, hence the establishment of the trust fund.
