The Continental Fund is crucial for the advancement of the Faith. It supports the work of the Continental Counselors, the Auxiliary Board, and their Assistants in the protection and expansion of the Faith. Their consultation and advice with the National Assembly, Regional Bahá’í Councils, Local Spiritual Assemblies, and cluster agencies helps spread what is being learned around the country about how to advance the community development process.
The National Spiritual Assembly has increased its contribution to this Fund, from $600,000 annually to $1 million. To contribute to this Fund, you can select it from the drop-down menu in the Online Contribution System.
