achi Hope Fund

Since its inception in 2020, achi’s leading mission has been to help the community. In July of 2023, we established the achi Hope Fund, a donor-advised fund through The Defiance Area Foundation. This tax-exempt charitable 501(c)3 fund allows us to expand our work in the community by partnering with other organizations and donors that share our mission.

The achi Hope Fund helps achi’s partners provide services for individuals to get through some of life’s tough challenges by ensuring that their basic needs are met such as food, clothing, temporary housing, repairs to home or home goods, car repairs, rent/mortgage/security deposits, utilities, childcare, education and more. The achi Hope Fund also assists in supporting the Caching Memories and GapQuest programs.
