In the unusual circumstance that a donation cannot be granted pursuant to a donor’s recommended charity, ACF will either reassign the donation to another similar charitable organization or to an ACF charitable program. Pending distribution of grants, ACF holds donations in a secure, non-interest-bearing bank account.
ACF makes several attempts on a best efforts basis to grant funds to the donor’s recommended charity. ACF is the “charity of record,” the receiving charity for donations on our platform(s) and retains exclusive control over all donations. The listing of a charity in the AngeLink or ACF database or directory is not a guarantee that the charity will receive funds from ACF. You can learn more about how ACF grants funds to unenrolled and enrolled nonprofits by reviewing our Donation Remittance Policy.
In the unlikely event ACF is unable to remit the funds successfully because the charity fails to cash the check sent, or the charity no longer complies with the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy (or any other applicable ACF policy), ACF reserves the right to reassign the donation to another similar charitable organization or to an ACF charitable program. Charities enrolled in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance must meet the eligibility requirements in the ACF Nonprofit Alliance Policy
