Angel Grants

We support disenfranchised women through: entrepreneurship, education and emergencies. We fuel creative initiatives and charitable partners through grants to individuals and charitable partners to create a better future and affect real and positive change. In our giving, we are committed to supporting women of all races and ethnicities. We are on a mission to fight racism, sexism and to help the marginalized and underrepresented.


We’re committed to helping women business owners and entrepreneurs thrive by facilitating access to capital and mentorship. We periodically distribute grants and mentorship opportunities to women with powerful ideas for businesses, organizations and charities.

We believe that women of all ages should have the opportunity to improve their education and professional skills training program to be more successful in life. Whether it’s a professional certification in a certain area you need, a training program or a college or graduate degree, AngeLink Community Foundation can help with matching funds.

When disaster or emergencies strike, the AngeLink Community Foundation is ready to help with matching grants and in-kind support.

We make matching grants (direct and in-kind) and facilitate mentorship opportunities to women who are raising money on the AngeLink platform by leveraging the generous support of our partner and donor communities. We announce these opportunities as they arise on our website and the AngeLink giving platform.

The AngeLink Community Foundation promotes inclusion, diversity and equality. Our community is committed to treating everyone with respect and compassion regardless of ethnicity, race, national origin, religion, beliefs, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or age. Everyone can be an Angel!

Eligible Organizations

Organizations funded by ACF are typically grassroots community nonprofits that align with one or more of our 3 Pillars of Giving. Check out the specifics of what we look for:

  • Geographic Criteria:

    Grantees must be primarily located in the United States but can also work in other countries. Local chapters of statewide or national organizations may apply.

  • Timing:

    ACF grants are intended to help organizations achieve a timely and specific outcome or impact within three to six months usually as part of a long-term strategy to achieve a stated goal.

  • Nonprofit Status:

    The organization has a 501(C)(3) charitable status or a fiscal sponsor with 501(C)(3) status. Organizations that do not yet have 501(C)(3) status may apply but may be required to secure a fiscal sponsor before receiving a grant.

  • One Grant Per Year:

    Each organization can receive one ACF grant per year to support their core mission and their primary geography. Current grantees may be eligible for additional grant opportunities after receiving an initial ACF grant on a case-by case basis.

  • No More Than Three Continuous Years of Funding:

    ACF welcomes applications from current grantees for up to three continuous years. After three years, we ask grantees to take a one-year break before re-applying. Grantees are eligible to re-apply after this one-year break provided that they have secured funding sources in addition to ACF support.

  • Budget Size:

    For most grant categories, the organization should have a budget of less than $3,000,000. Some grant categories may have a lower budget limit. Emergency and disaster relief grants do not have a budget limit.

Ineligible Organizations

ACF values the work of all groups in social services, civic engagement and advocacy. However, we are unable to consider grants for the following expenses for Nonprofit Alliance partners:

  • Activities to elect specific candidates for public office
  • Fundraising events to support galas, auctions, parties
  • Feasibility studies
  • Capital fund drives
  • Travel expenses for individual speakers or conference participants
  • Organizations that do not comply with local, state or federal equal opportunity status
