What is the AngeLink Community Foundation (“ACF”)?
ACF is a certified IRS 501(c)(3) public charity, and the natural philanthropic arm of the AngeLink fundraising platform. ACF operates as a donor-advised fund and is separate from AngeLink, with its own independent board and staff. ACF receives donations made directly to ACF for subsequent distribution to donor-recommended charities and our specifically-listed causes and funds. In addition, ACF receives payments or checks to ACF in connection with identified fundraisers and beneficiaries listed on the AngeLink website. All donor-recommended funds are donated on a best efforts basis, in accordance with ACF’s role as a donor-advised fund.

In order for your nonprofit to receive ACF donations or grants, your charity must be enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance. Learn more about how ACF grants funds to nonprofits that are enrolled in our Nonprofit Alliance by reviewing the ACF Donation Remittance Policy.
For charities enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance when we receive donor-recommended contributions to your nonprofit, we will attempt to remit the funds via check if your nonprofit meets our requirements in the ACF Nonprofit User Agreement, Nonprofit Alliance Policy and the Donation Remittance Policy.
Enrolled charities will also get access to donor information and donation details (if the donor did not choose to donate anonymously). In addition, you may add your logo and describe your mission and charitable impact to enhance donor-advised funds.
ACF does not charge any fees to enroll nonprofits or to receive donations. However, standard credit card processing fees apply on the platform(s) disclosed on our technology partner AngeLink’s website.
In addition to supporting causes related to our 6 Pillars of Giving, ACF utilizes our fundraising partner’s (AngeLink’s) platform to provide responsive aid in the wake of global emergencies, such as natural disasters.
