About CSF

The Christadelphian Samaritan Fund (CSF) was set up in 1961 to enable members of the Christadelphian community to contribute to the relief of suffering and human need outside the Christadelphian community.   Our name comes from the parable of the Good Samaritan, which Jesus told with the intention to bring to life God’s commandment that we should love our neighbours as ourselves.

In this parable (Luke 10: 25-37), the Good Samaritan, despite the traditional enmity between Jews and Samaritans, came to the aid of a Jew who had been badly injured by thieves and left to die. Elsewhere, Jesus teaches us to: “Give to him who asks you…” (Matthew 6:42) and Paul exhorts us to: “…do good to all, especially those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:10)
