FAQs  

Does ACF fund projects or organizations outside of Alaska?
ACF funds projects consistent with its mission. Grants are made primarily to organizations—or for projects—located in Alaska. ACF has funded groups located outside of Alaska, but only for projects benefiting Alaska or for work conducted inside the state by an outside organization.

Does ACF make grants to individuals?
ACF has, at times, provided grants to individuals working on projects consistent with ACF’s mission. Grants to individuals are rare, however, and not normally encouraged.

How many times can my organization submit proposals in a given year?
Organizations may submit proposal requests throughout the year, in accordance with proposal submission guidelines.

Annual audits are required to be included with my proposal. What if my organization does not get annual audits?
ACF realizes that many smaller organizations do not receive annual financial audits. Contact ACF to clarify any questions about this requirement.

Does the grant deadline refer to the postmark date or “received by” date?
All proposals are due to ACF by 5:00 p.m. on the deadline date. (This means if the deadline date is July 1, proposals must received by ACF staff no later than 5:00 p.m. on July 1.) ACF only accepts proposals via e-mail: grants@alaskaconservation.org.
