About membership

ACF is the membership body for foundations and grant-making charities and is the only organisation that brings them together across the UK.

We provide insights, guidance and learning, and facilitate networking to support foundations to be ambitious and effective in the way they use their resources for social good.

More than 400 organisations are proud to be part of the ACF community. Our membership is inclusive and welcomes family trusts, corporate foundations, livery companies, broadcasting appeals and other grant-makers. Our members range in size from small and local grant-makers to some of the world’s largest foundations.
