Benefits of Partnering with Us

We hope you’ll think of the Community Foundation first when you have your clients’ charitable interests in mind. 


AAACF offers you and your clients several distinct advantages:

  • Simplicity – A charitable fund with us is an easy, low-cost alternative to forming and administering a private foundation. We can set up a fund within a day or so!
  • Tax Benefits – We offer maximum federal and state tax benefits.
  • Flexibility – We accept a wide variety of gifts, including appreciated securities, and have a number of fund options to fit your clients’ needs.
  • Community Impact – We are deeply involved with the needs in the community and can direct gift dollars to high-impact areas.
  • Stability – Our standards for investment performance, donor services and grantmaking are published and publicly available. Managing more than $220M in assets, AAACF has been a trustworthy steward of charitable gifts since 1963.
  • Transparency – Investment decisions and evaluation of investment performance are overseen by a volunteer committee of current and former board members and community leaders with expertise in investment analysis. Service fees and fund minimums are also available online.
  • Online Access for Your Clients – We offer DonorView, a secure online portal for donors to view their fund, add to their fund, make grant requests, and more.
