The Monthly Donor Society recognizes a special network of supporters, people who have different stories with our organization but the same desire to sustain our programs!
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, AMIGOS has suspended 2020 Summer Programs and the Spring Gap Program. We made this difficult decision with the safety and health of our students and host communities in mind.
During this trying time for our entire global community, please donate to AMIGOS monthly. Your monthly sustaining gifts will create greater stability for the organization.
We are determined. Our mission and vision will remain intact: now and always. Join us in keeping AMIGOS strong through monthly giving.

As one of the nation’s oldest international youth service organizations, AMIGOS has transformed the lives of more than 30,000 young people over five decades. A bequest or other legacy gift is a meaningful way to leave a legacy with an organization that has played an important role in your life.
You may designate your gift toward the area of greatest need, financial assistance, the AMIGOS endowment, or a specific program. If you have already made a legacy gift, please let us know so we can recognize you as a society member. The Guy Bevil Legacy Society Intention Form can be downloaded here.
When you include a charity in your will or estate plans, you are making a bequest. Bequests are the most common type of legacy gift. You can also leave a legacy gift by making AMIGOS the beneficiary of one’s retirement plan, life-insurance, stock, cash assets, etc.

The Guy Bevil Legacy Society is named in honor of the founder of AMIGOS, Guy Bevil, who had the vision and drive to start the organization in 1965. We applaud Guy Bevil’s legacy as well as the foresight of our Legacy Society members who are securing our vision for future generations and the organization’s future success.
