The Details

Acton Family Giving is a donor advised fund (DAF) created in 2014 and held at Fidelity Charitable. AFG is staffed through Pacific Foundation Services, which provides administrative, programmatic, and strategic support to the fund.


The Acton Family Giving donor advised fund has a balance of approximately $370M. The Actons are committed to giving a minimum of 5% yearly.

Why a DAF?

We picked a donor advised fund (DAF) to allow flexibility in our work and make it possible to maintain a low expense ratio and keep our focus on grantmaking. This is because our DAF provider, Fidelity Charitable, manages all compliance (IRS filings, governance, reporting, etc.). Find out more about DAFs here.
