African American Community Family of Funds

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.
