African-American Community Fund
Created in 2004, the African-American Community Fund (AACF) is the Springfield Foundation’s first Affiliate, or family of funds.
The purpose of the AACF is two-fold. First, it aims to encourage philanthropy among African-American Donors in Clark County. Second, it serves to assist in providing resources for a broad range of existing and future charitable needs throughout Clark County.
The objectives of the African-American Community Fund are:
» To receive gifts, grants, and bequests for the benefit of both specific and broad African-American community charitable interests;
» To advise and assist donors who would benefit from the use of the African-American Community Fund in the achievement of their charitable objectives; and,
» To make grants from African-American Community Endowment Funds to benefit worthy African-American charitable, benevolent, cultural, religious, civic, health, scientific, and educational purposes.
