About the Foundation
Formed in 2013, ACS Foundation funds more than one hundred charities and organizations in the US and abroad. A national and international network of partners enables the Foundation to leverage its impact. With a sustained commitment to ongoing investments in under-resourced communities, the ACS Foundation works to empower lives and inspire change.
Community Outreach and Corporate Giving
Our community services include corporate-level giving and helping our employees to contribute to programs that are important to them. From sponsor-a-child programs, tutoring, and clothing donations to environment-based initiatives – the spirit of giving runs deep throughout our company.
These initiatives take care of both, one-time needs as well as ongoing commitments of time and skill. Most of our initiatives are profoundly important to our employees on a personal level. And they all make a positive difference in the community. We hope that our stories will inspire you to reach out and awaken the giving spirit that is within you.
