AAACF holds endowments for more than 100 nonprofits, working in partnership with these organizations. Because AAACF has the administrative expertise to manage and steward all aspects of the endowment, each nonprofit can focus on carrying out its mission. Endowments provide a way for nonprofits to diversify their funding and build capital for the future. Loyal supporters of an organization can consider a planned gift their support continues in perpetuity. For example, a $25,000 estate gift approximates an $1,000 check each year!
The first of its kind in our region, AAACF launched a $500,000 Nonprofit Loan Fund to offer nonprofits access to low cost, flexible capital in the form of repayable loans. Funds support a nonprofit’s mission to sustainably pursue and achieve outcomes to benefit the community.
AAACF awards grants through several competitive grant programs each year, with applications submitted through our online grants portal.
