About us

The Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) is the leading membership association for foundations and independent grant-makers in the UK.

Driven by a belief that foundations are a vital source for social good, our purpose is to strengthen trusts and foundations so they can rise to the challenges of our times. We do this through the provision of policy and advocacy, research and information, and a wide-ranging programme of events and learning. Our 450 members collectively hold assets of around £50bn and give over £2.5bn annually.

Vision – diverse, vibrant, and effective foundations, working together for social good

Purpose – we strengthen trusts and foundations so they can rise to the challenges of our times

Values – we care, we are open, we are evidence based, we are ambitious
