About us

The Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) is the membership body for UK foundations and grant-making charities.

Driven by a belief that foundations are a vital source for social good, our mission is to support them to be ambitious and effective in the way that they use their resources. We do this through the provision of policy and advocacy, research and information, and a wide-ranging programme of events and learning. Our 400 members collectively hold assets of around £50bn and give over £2.5bn annually.
