These are remarkable times at Amigos de las Américas. The reach and relevance of our impact on youth grows daily. As President and CEO, I am proud that our organization is building bridges by growing our programs and expanding access for more young people throughout the Americas.
Our vision is a world in which each young person, regardless of socioeconomic status, can become a lifelong catalyst for social change through participation in an AMIGOS program. Your continued support is critical to these efforts.
In 2016, financial aid awards from the National Office increased in three dramatic ways:
80% increase in the total amount distributed
27% increase in the average individual award
36% increase in the number of participants who received awards
With the support of individuals like you – in addition to foundations, companies, and philanthropic leaders in our community – we were able to achieve this striking growth in just one year.
Imagine what we can achieve together in 2017.
Please make your next gift today to support our commitment to making AMIGOS accessible to more diverse youth.
