ACBL allocates four sessions of sectional-rated foundation/fund events annually to each unit. Included are Charity Championships, Junior Fund, International Fund, Grass Roots Fund and Educational Fund games. These sessions may be run as four one-session events, two two-session events, one two-session and two one-session events, one three-session and one one-session event, or one four-session event. Only Junior Fund games can be run in the month of January, Charity games in April, Grass Roots Fund in May and International Fund games in September.
If a charity event is run, the ACBL Charity Foundation or the Canadian Charitable Fund must be the beneficiary of the first event and two of the first three events. The unit may select any IRS-approved or Revenue Canada-approved tax-exempt charitable organization for the second or fourth event.
