Make a difference with a monthly gift

Becoming a monthly donor is a great option because…

  • You can ensure that our programs continue and engage more and more youth.
  • You can set up your giving for the entire year easily and rest assured that you are regularly supporting a vision for the world you share with us.
  • You can join a passionate community of fellow monthly donors in the AMIGOS Monthly Donor Society.

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!

 

Your monthly donations are needed to keep AMIGOS strong during COVID-19.

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.

HELP SUSTAIN THE VISION OF AMIGOS WITH A LEGACY GIFT

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.
