As part of ACT’s transition to a new donor portal in January 2022, there will be a new online portal for you to access information about your fund and make grant recommendations. The new portal will be active February 1. Leeann Napoleon, Development and Program Manager, will be sending an email with specific instructions on accessing and utilizing the online portal directly to fund advisors. Meanwhile, if you wish to make a grant request or have questions about your fund, please contact Leeann directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current ACT Donor Portal is available until January 31, 2022 to view past grant and fund activity.
