B. The American Culinary Federation Chef & Child Foundation -
   History: From our past to the present...
    1. During the 23rd World Congress of the World Association of Cooks Society, a
       presentation was made outlining the rising concern of world hunger and its adverse
       affects. ACF representatives attended the congress, including George Hirsch and
       Jack Braun. Hirsch and Braun were moved by the presentation, and agreed that
       with fourteen million Americans being affected with various forms of malnutrition,
       something had to be done.

    2. In 1989 ACF President Jack Braun, CEC, AAC, HOF, George Hirsch, AAC and four
       regional vice presidents outlined a strategy for addressing the dietary and nutritional
       needs of children. They formed the American Culinary Federation Chef & Child
       Foundation (ACFCCF). At the general membership of the ACF 59th Annual
       Convention this philanthropic arm of the ACF was formally adopted. With ACF
       Chapters working together on initiatives to improve the nutrition of America’s
       children, chapter activities and CCF national efforts are and can be tremendously
       successful. In order to build more national support, The Board of Directors voted in
       1998 to refocus efforts, first on local and state levels, creating a strong grassroots
       initiative which supports current national efforts to address the nutritional needs of
       our children.

    3. Today many ACF Chapters and hundreds of members participate annually in the
       programs of the ACFCCF. A major opportunity is our newly renamed CHILDHOOD
       NUTRITION DAY (formerly Childhood Hunger Day) held on October 16th. Every
       year in October American Culinary Federation chefs and ACF Chapters are
       encouraged to hold nutrition awareness events on or around that date.

       (Refer to information for holding this event in III. C, p.8, or on our ACFCCF web site

    4. Recently, at the 2007 ACF National Convention, the ACF Chef & Child Foundation
       voted to join the ACF Foundation, now known as the ACF Education Foundation,
       increasing partnership and branding opportunities for CCF.

    5. Local chapters work with the civil defense authorities, the American Red Cross and
       the Salvation Army to provide funding in times of disaster for the aid and benefit of

    6. CCF provides ACF Chapters with support, so that they may correctly address the
       press, invite well-known people and advertise their events. rev. 1/08

    Fundraising Guidelines
    A. Legal Status:       The American Culinary Federation Chef and Child Foundation is
       registered as a non-profit corporation of the ACF with the Internal Revenue Service (legal
      definition: we are a 501(c)3 charity under section 708 of the Not-for-Profit Corporation
      Law). Because we are incorporated as such, it is vitally important that we follow all the
      guidelines as described in the Fundraising section of the Handbook, especially with regard
      to dispersal of funds.

         1. Support
               a. ACFCCF has a staff to assist you with questions that may arise diring your
                  event planning, during your event, or even after the event has been held. If
                  you have any questions, you can simply call or email the ACF National
                  Headquarters and speak with someone in the Member Service Center, or
                  ask to speak with the CCF Staff. The contact information is: 800-624-9458 or

         2. Criteria
                a. Fill out the charity registration application for the fundraiser (in Appendices
                   A, p.14) and send it to the ACF National Office.

                b. For donations to be tax deductible to the giver, the ACF Chapter holding the
                   fundraising event just pre-registers with CCF.

                c. Donations made to local chapters are tax-deductible to certain degrees
                   under the ACF 501(c)3 status.

         3. Completion
              a. Following the fundraising event, complete the Fundaising Activity Report (in
                 Appendices C, p.16) and send to the ACF National Office with a check from
                 net income after total expenses.

                b. ACF sends a check and/or joint check to your chapter/charity which is 80%
                   of the funds sent in from chapter to charity. The remaining 20% of the funds
                   remain at the national level where 10% can be specified for partner
                   programs, or support national programs. The remaining 10% help to cover
                   the administrative costs and public relations costs.

                c. In order for us to comply with IRS regulations and requirement, any funds
                   raised using the CCF name and/or logo must be sent to the ACF National
                   Office, after the costs of the event have been deducted, to be duly
                   registered. This is done so the CCF is able to track any funds raised for tax

B. Fundraising Ideas
    1. Suggestions for chapter fundraising themes are as follows:

          c. Develop your own creative fundraising theme.

C. Fundraising Proceeds
    1. Funds raised by the ACF Chapters provide CCF grants to agencies in their local
       communities to present nutrition awareness programs.

          a. These fundraisers provide the means whereby chefs can take an active year
             round interest in adapting nutrition information and programs to address
             hunger, malnutrition and obesity in their community through the 80% net
             proceeds after expenses returned to the chapter’s approved local charity.

             costs and public relations costs. The remaining 10% can be earmarked for
             Grant Type “B” qualifying chapter nutrition related activities, and with board
             approval are directed toward charitable partners.

              and goals of the ACFCCF in its fights against hunger, malnutrition and obesity. It is
              a reflection of a chapter’s involvement in facilitating programs to provide education
              in childhood nutrition and decreasing childhood obesity now and in the future.

                  a. Deadline for applications to be submitted is January 15 of each year.

                  b. It is awarded to a chapter during the ACFCCF report at the general session

                  c. To the four regional winners, a plaque designating the region and award-
                     winning chapter is presented.

                  d. The Chef & Child chair from the chapter may be recognized, if they were
                     instrumental in formulating the exceptional efforts for the chapter when the
                     “Little Oscar” is presented both regionally and nationally.

                  e. Visit our web site at for an application or refer to
                     Appendices F.P.19.

           2. The National “Little Oscar” Award will be decided by the selection committee
              comprised of four regional CCF Board Members.

                  a. Regional winners do not need to re-apply between their regional conference
                     and national convention; the information submitted in their regional
                     application will be the base criterion for the ACFCCF Little Oscar National
                     Trophy Winner.

                  b. The CCF Committee will consider exceptional effort for providing nutrition
                     education to children, which helps with hunger/malnutrition, and/or other
                     efforts to curb the growing problem of childhood obesity in America. Below
                     are some suggestions:

• AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS - An ACF local chapter holds a Childhood
  Nutrition Day event on around the official Childhood Nutrition Day,
  October 16th.

• SUPPORTING A LOCAL CHARITY that meets CCF guidelines with
  their fundraiser, or your chapter can make a direct monetary donation
  to ACFCCF.

  can work in the community in schools, head start programs and after
  school programs. Educational materials for presenting nutritional
  awareness are available from the ACF National Office.

• DISASTER RELIEF - Call CCF if there is a disaster that affects children.

History and Limits: In January 1999, the amount for Grant “B” funds was set at 10% of the net fundraising dollars.

Definition: “B” Grand funds are provided to chapters that have completed an approved CCF fundraiser. These funds are
for use for a CCF related activity within the Chapter. They cannot be used as seed money for future fundraisers. These
may include, but are not limited to:
                 - Chapter education relating to CCF programs
                 - Chapter CCF community projects
                 - Funding for travel associated with CCF activities

 “B” Grant Request Procedures and Qualifications: Once a chapter has completed their fundraiser, they must send
in the net proceeds following expenditures with the Activity Reporting Form. The chapter can complete the Type “B”
Grant criteria at that time and forward the application along with the funds and report. When the chapter has correctly
completed everything within the time allotted, CCF will review the application and if the application is approved, a check
for the chapter will be included with the two-party checks for the charity.

Reporting: The chapter is responsible for allocating the funds for CCF activities; however, CCF may request verification
of expenditures. Please keep all receipts and documentation current. rev. 6/07
