Who We Are

ACI provides a program of support and assistance to other not-for-profit organizations and educational and vocational training institutions from the elementary level through graduate studies. 

ACI selects organizations in the United States and foreign countries that promote international understanding, the interchange of ideas and cultural activities among people of different nations.

ACI supports these organizations by providing grants and loans that are interest-free or bear below-market interest rates to organizations that foster and facilitate charitable and educational programs.

ACI also owns and maintains real property facilities in Italy and Israel.  These facilities are made available rent-free to educational and cultural institutions operated by not-for-profit organizations.   ACI has experience in the full development process starting with property acquisition, planning for facility remodeling or ground up construction, regulatory approvals, all the way through final execution and handover to the user organization.
