African Defence Foundation offers a membership association for select Special Operations Forces and military veterans who wish to become part of the ADF community, and to support or participate in international ADF events. ADF Association membership consists mostly of active duty, reserves, or retired soldiers, as well as select Police special operations and high-risk security operatives. The following membership options are available:



Past serving members of any Army, Navy, Air Force, or Military Health Services. A free membership option if you wish to receive information about ADF events, publications and news. This membership level also contributes data to the ADF P-MOS database for future defence and security related projects recruitment.



This category is exclusive for all active duty, reserves, or retired regular forces members of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines, or Military Health Services with a rank of SGT and higher. This membership level also contributes data to the ADF A-MOS database for future projects recruitment.



An exclusive membership group dedicated to past and present medically fit serving members of Special Forces, SOF, and SSR (ADF) with at least 12 months jump recency. This membership level contributes data to the ADF S-MOS database for future special operations projects recruitment.



Corporations with an interest in serving armed forces personnel and organisations, including defence R&D and product developers requiring field testing of products for refining or onward marketing. Corporate members can advertise veteran preferred employment to the ADF membership data base.

African Defence Foundation NPC (ADF) is a self-funded organisation and uses association membership fees to contribute to the funding of its diverse network of global operations. Through your membership, ADF becomes better at doing what it does best, namely, helping people in need using available resources, and creating opportunities for veterans.
