New ACF Stronger Foundations report launched

8 March 2022

A new ACF report has been published this week, the latest from the Stronger Foundations initiative.

It finds that a growing number of ACF members are pursuing ambitious and effective practice, driven by a desire to make the most of their resources that are increasingly in demand. Amid the global pandemic and a greater focus on inequality in society, foundations are seeking to strengthen their governance, be more transparent, reduce the burden on grantees and improve their staff and board diversity.

The report, ‘Becoming Stronger Foundations’, showcases more than 50 practical examples of how ACF members are putting into action the Stronger Foundations ‘pillars of practice’. More than half of the examples are from smaller foundations awarding less than £1m a year in grants, showing that no type or size of foundation has a monopoly on being ambitious and effective.
