Advice from a Friend

ACF has a grants management portal for funders and 90% of the funding is NOT ACF money but foundation/corporation dollars. ACF has very few of its own funding cycles. The best opportunities come from direct conversations between the nonprofit's CEO and an ACF philanthropic adviser. The most frustrating issue with ACF is its use of the SAME application and report for both program and capital funding.

Pros

Builds relationships

ACF philanthropic advisors prefer to speak with nonprofit leaders and not the person developing the proposal. Be sure to have the CEO or development director contact ACF.

Cons

Doesn't "get" nonprofits and issues

Reviewer 807 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2015

This funder wants to maximize the number of organizations they fund, so they often make awards for less than the requested amount. Never ask for more money than you need (sometimes they do fully fund the request!), but be aware that partial awards are more common that full awards.

Pros

Friendly, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Responsive
