Start up Organizations affiliate with ACF as they embark on fundraising and marketing to become known. When they are financially secure the organization becomes independent of ACF. ACF assumes the responsibility for reports to the IRS and the state and charges a 5% fee from the proceeds of the affiliate for the service. ACF will also help affiliates achieve non-profit status for an additional fee.


Government commissions also find a home with ACF for grants and sponsors requiring a non-profit entity. Once monies are available, we also provide grant support to new, aspiring entities.
