ACFR is a private, voluntary organization with a very small Washington-based staff.  Our sustenance comes from Committee member dues, grants, and voluntary contributions.  The latter are particularly vital to us.  ACFR is a duly recognized nonprofit organization (501[c][3]), and donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

You can make a contribution to ACFR in various ways:
