AMIGOS believes in the power of community—bringing people from around the world together to make an impact on our collective future.

Volunteers open themselves to a broader world, giving them a global perspective. Exposure to this new and different landscape at a young age shapes volunteers’ values and impacts the people they will become. They can see that the world can be welcoming and exciting—and that they have a place in it. AMIGOS volunteers return home more mature, confident, and motivated. Their experience stays with them, its impact still surfacing decades later.

We want to continue building young leaders through collaborative community development and immersion in cross-cultural experiences, and the best way we can do that is with your support. There are a variety of ways you can help:

  • Donate online
  • Mail cash or a check made out to “AMIGOS” to 1800 West Loop South, Suite 1325, Houston, TX 77027
  • Match your gift through your employer! Search here to see if your employer matches gifts.
  • Shop with Amazon Smile by choosing “Amigos de las Americas International Headquarters” as your selected charity beneficiary.
  • Donate via Donor Advised Funds or through gifts of stock or other assets. Email Jenny Claycombe at [email protected] with questions.
  • Make a legacy gift to AMIGOS by including AMIGOS in your will or estate plans.

No matter how you decide to contribute to AMIGOS, you’re supporting new generations of young people who are ready to impact their communities. Thank you for helping create a world where each young person becomes a lifelong catalyst for social change.
