ACN Global Reach Charities has been recognized by Charlotte Business Journal as one of the largest Charlotte area foundations. Since 2011, ACN Global Reach Charities has provided focused management and fundraising efforts to many of the initiatives started by the ACN Co-Founders. The foundation is honored to be ranked 19th by the publication for their $1,292,750 in donations during 2013.
ACN supports a long and ever-growing list of organizations on a global scale, as well as many organizations in Charlotte and the surrounding areas, with our efforts concentrated on those directly impacting children. In fact, since ACN relocated their World Headquarters to Concord, NC, they’ve made it their mission to cultivate roots in the Charlotte area and help the community grow by first growing the children and families throughout the community. Today, ACN supports over 50 local organizations and growing.
ACN partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities on a global scale in 2008, raising funds for houses around the globe at each of their events, totaling well into the millions. But when ACN discovered Charlotte didn’t have a house, they made it their mission to help change that, making significant contributions locally to open the doors of the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. ACN continues to support the cause through donations and volunteer hours. In addition, ACN hosts the annual Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte Celebrity Golf Tournament, which most recently raised over $200,000!
In addition, ACN has stretched their branches even further throughout North America with their partnership with the Will Play for Food Foundation. The Foundation’s goal is to wipe out childhood hunger right here at home, and ACN’s goal is to help feed 1 million children during 2014 alone. Based on this relationship, when someone becomes an ACN customer or pays their bill each month, a child gets fed.
“At ACN, success isn’t about what we can do for ourselves – it’s about what we can do for others, and it’s our responsibility and our privilege to support the communities in which we live, work and play,” said ACN Chairman and Co-Founder Robert Stevanovski.
