ABOUT THE ALEXANDRA CRISTIN FOUNDATION

The Alexandra Cristin Foundation's 3rd anniversary business grant cycle is set to open in August 2022. This cycle will further the ACF’s goal of empowering entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds by giving a $5,000 business grant to 10 individuals.

Our 2021 cycle focused on supporting applicants who had been particularly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the second and third cycles will support entrepreneurs - regardless of where they are on their entrepreneurial journey, from 'established' to 'aspiring' - by funding their professional development expenses.

The smaller scale of these cycles will allow recipients to be selected more quickly, and allow the foundation to repeat giving throughout the year. LEARN MORE
