How do I recommend an organization for ACC to support?

The missions we support are based on the recommendations of ACC members as well as conformance with specific criteria as described in the M&O Handbook. If you would like to recommend a mission for ACC to support, please contact the M&O Committee at missions@actonc.org. You will be asked to provide a request/application letter on the organization you are proposing we support. We welcome your recommendations and will invite you to attend one of our committee meetings to give us more information.
