Partner with AFS to make change happen three ways


Advance our impact goals

  • Expand access to intercultural education

Support AFS scholarships

Help more talented students from all backgrounds build global competence, increase their employability prospects and become leaders in their communities.


Honor our heroic founders

Donating to The AFS Volunteer Ambulance Drivers Impact Fund in honor or memory of a beloved Driver ensures that AFS remains strong and vital as a volunteer organization.



Why I donate

“For 30 years, AFS has provided a variety of unique opportunities for hundreds of children of HSBC employees to live and study overseas. We watched them grow into confident, resilient, mature and culturally aware young adults—some of the very qualities that HSBC values in our people,”

— Steven Travis, HSBC Chief Administration Officer.
