Requesting A Grant
Making a Difference
The Directors of ACGFund are waiting to help you make a grant from a Donor Account. Simply download the Grant Request form, fill it out on the Donor Advisor's instruction, gain his or her signature and forward it to ACGFund. (Fax, mail or attach the form to an e-mail - each gets your request to ACGFund's office.)
The Grant Request form is stored in Portable Document Format (PDF). The form is available under Documentation/Forms tab after you login to your your account.
The minimum grant administered by the Fund is $250. There may be a fee assessed for a grant. This is a pass through cost only; wires from trust companies used by ACGFund may cost $20 and this expense will be passed through to your Donor Account. ACGFund does not charge for grant administration.
Please note that a grant cannot be used to fulfill a pre-existing pledge to a charitable organization. A grant cannot be used to pay for membership fees, dues, tuition, benefit tickets or goods bought at charitable auctions.
The Internet is full of interesting web sites that will help make grant-making productive. Several sites, www.guidestar.org is one, provide information about many potential grant recipients and make available regulatory information such as a nonprofit's Federal filing, the 990.
