Become an ACF Friend

Australian Communities Foundation is especially grateful for the support of our ACF Friends – a special group of supporters of the work we do towards a fairer and more sustainable Australia.

The ongoing support of this group has enabled us to build our capacity and invest in new strategic projects, such as the launch of Australia’s first formal philanthropic hub, the Community of Giving, in 2018.

As a token of our appreciation for our Friends, we offer unique opportunities for this group to get together and engage with community partners, including exclusive invitations from arts and culture organisations. Friends are also the first to hear about new developments at ACF.

There are a number of ways you can become an ACF Friend – whether that’s committing to leaving a bequest to ACF, donating money for our strategic work, referring people to ACF, volunteering on the ACF Board or a committee, or providing other in-kind support.
