Publishing Development Fund

A fund set up by the General Conference administered by the World Literature Ministry Coordinating Board to further special publishing projects around the world. Income to the fund comes from General Conference appropriations and annual donations from denominational publishing houses. Among the projects funded are development of literature to meet special language or ethnic needs among large non-Christian populations, provide means for international cooperation in developing magazine articles and tracts that can be printed simultaneously in different languages, the purchase of printing equipment, and the construction of publishing houses. All allocations from the fund are matched by the recipient division on a 50-50 basis.
