Who We Are

About Us

ACR is a project of The Philanthropy Roundtable that educates legislators and policymakers about the central role of private giving in American life and the importance of protecting philanthropic freedom. Our mission is to promote the right of Americans to choose how and where to spend their charitable assets and to defend that right amidst legislative or political processes that weaken it. Our objectives are:

  • To identify ways to preserve and expand America’s standing as the most generous and charitable nation by promoting the importance of voluntary, participatory, and active giving by donors.
  • To safeguard the freedom of donors and private foundations to carry out their diverse charitable goals and missions, in order to preserve their distinctive contributions.
  • To promote common-sense laws and regulations which encourage charitable giving and impose strict penalties on violators.
