AFS International Board Fundraising Challenge

AFS creates communities like no other. That’s why members of the AFS International Board of Trustees have joined forces on a fundraising challenge: our Board will match any donation to the AFS Global Impact Fund up to a total of $10,000! Will you join them by making a donation today?

By donating to AFS now, you will help create a transformational impact, enabling AFS programs to build communities based on understanding, intercultural communication and commitment to creating a better world. From those who founded AFS to those who serve on our Board today: we recognize that our programs nurturing global citizenship and intercultural understanding must continue to address everyone—young people, families and volunteers—whether we meet them in person or online. Your donation to the AFS Global Impact Fund will make that work possible.

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.
