About Acacia Fraternity Foundation The Acacia Fraternity Foundation ( AFF ), founded in 1989, is Acacia Fraternity's non-profit educational foundation. A 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) tax-exempt organization, the AFF exists to provide scholarships to student Acacians and to support the worthy educational and leadership activities of the fraternity. The goal of the Acacia Fraternity Foundation is to ensure that the Fraternity realizes its vision of providing training, support and guidance to every undergraduate member. One of the most valuable and enduring ways you can demonstrate your support for Acacia is by contributing to the Annual Fund. You may also support specific programs, support your chapter, or leave a planned gift. Approximately two-thirds of the Fraternity's expenses can be supported through educational grants from the Foundation. Your continuing support ensures that the spirit of Acacia lives on through future generations. Gifts made to the AFF to support educational initiatives are tax-deductible.
