ACF was founded to inspire generosity and achieve social justice by providing an efficient, accessible, and inspiring platform for giving. We have a proud history of engaging with social change philanthropy and giving across a wide range of issues impacting Australian communities.
The ACF Impact Fund fund was seeded through several generous bequests and provides a platform to further harness the collective giving potential of our community and tackle the pressing issues facing our nation.
The fund has a focus on four issues that are timely, of national importance and reflect the interests and values of the ACF community:
- Tackling Inequality
- Empowering Indigenous Communities
- Safeguarding the Environment
- Strengthening Democracy
The timing of the launch of the Impact Fund is not only significant for our organisation but also for our nation as we grapple with gaps in public debate, policy, planning and spending. With these gaps come opportunities to seek out new solutions and use our collective resources to help co-create positive social change.
The Impact Fund is about vision, inspiration and being bold. We will work together to address systemic disadvantage, to give a voice to those who don’t have one, to fight for the values we believe in and to give collectively for a fairer Australia. We invite you to join us on this journey.
You can make regular or one-off donations to the Impact Fund – it’s a powerful way to make a difference where the need is greatest.
