Community Engagement

We are for the community and by the community. AAACF is thankful for the 400+ community members who contribute time and expertise to every aspect of our work each year.


Community voice is integral to our work in Washtenaw County. Over our history, more than 1000 community members have given their valuable time and perspective to support our mission. This includes formal volunteer service on our Board of Trustees, including our Emeritus Trustees, as well as a numerous committees.

It also includes those who consistently provide feedback, engage in our community conversations, volunteer in our day-to-day operations, and much more. Thank you for your continued service to AAACF and our community!

Engagement at AAACF often includes opportunities to participate in philanthropy education, collective giving, and community events. To learn more about getting involved, please contact us at info@aaacf.org or 734-663-0401.
