Stronger Foundations: Reflect. Recover. Renew.

Attending ACF Virtual Annual Conference:

With convenient desktop access our online format has never been more accessible for individuals and teams from all organisations to join us.

We welcome registered participants from any UK organisation which is an endowed foundation or one that makes grants for charitable purposes.

Registration is now closed.

If you’ve registered to attend, here’s what’s included with your ticket:

  • Online access via Zoom to all main sessions for 25 – 26 November
  • Over 8 hours of high-quality speaker presentations or discussions
  • A choice of member programme sessions to attend each day
  • On Demand, pre-recorded, and recorded content after the event
  • Peer interactivity via Q&A, polling, and social sessions
Choose your participant session options.

The annual conference programme offers a number of parallel streams of content choices on both days. Participants need to choose which sessions they wish to attend in advance and add these to their registration during the booking process at Eventbrite. As some of these participant session choices have limited capacities due to their online format, they are offered on a first registered, first served basis.

If your first choice is no longer available, you will still be able to access a minimum of one other content session at that time. You can also add your name to a wait list to see if your preferred choice becomes available again.

It is essential you know which participant session choices you want to attend before proceeding to book. If booking for a group, please have ALL participant choices to hand, before you go to book their tickets. If booking for a foundation group, please only register a maximum of 2 persons into any limited participant session choices, so as many different foundations can attend these sessions. Thank you.
