*Excludes VAT. Affiliate members pay on the same scale as Associate members. 

If you are a grant-making charity based outside the UK, please email us for information for non-UK members. 

Subscriptions are fixed according to the level of grants that an organisation is responsible for overseeing, excluding the organisation’s own administration/support costs.

The audited accounts used should be the most recently available ones. If two or more organisations are administered jointly, we would expect the subscription to reflect the combined grants figure.

The subscription year runs from January to December. New members joining in mid-year pay a proportion of the full year's rate, calculated in whole months, with rounding to the nearest £5. Please contact ACF if you have any difficulty calculating your subscription. 

ACF welcomes contributions over and above the rates stated, in order to help with our work in promoting the effectiveness of grant-making trusts.
