Giving Together is a program at The Alaska Community Foundation that allows fundholders and donors to partner with ACF in our grantmaking process and co-fund the grant proposals that most inspire them. It is ACF’s goal to connect people with the causes they care about.  By creating a direct link between donors and nonprofit missions, we help you maximize your charitable giving. For our donor advised fundholders, the Giving Together program is available in an exclusively tailored way.

Maximize and customize your giving opportunities

If you wish to receive communication about grant opportunities that ACF does not have the capacity to fully fund but are nevertheless worthy causes to support, you may join a special mailing list available just for donor advisors. If you wish to support only causes that are tailored to your philanthropic interests, ACF staff will work with you to understand your particular charitable interests and discuss your communication preferences. If you at any time wish to modify your preferences, simply contact us and we can make changes.

Give differently through your donor advised fund

While you may make a donation directly, you can also do so via a grant recommendation through your Donor Advised Fund.

To make a recommendation through your donor advised fund, you may fill out a grant recommendation form access Giving Together and granting information online via DonorCentral.

Through DonorCentral, ACF staff will share giving opportunities online. When grant opportunities are available, they will be listed on the home page of your DonorCentral account. You will be able to click on these opportunities to learn more and to recommend a grant through your Donor Advised Fund online. We will share information about these proposals as well as detailed instructions for grantmaking online for those who wish to do so this way.

To find out more about current granting opportunities, please visit the current Giving Together donation page on our website, log into DonorCentral, or call or email us using the information below.

If you wish to make a donation directly, simply send us a check or make a donation to through the Giving Together donation page on our website. Indicate which program or organization you wish to support in the text box on the third page of the donate section or in the “memo” portion of your check.
