Contributions to AGYA Are Now Tax-Deductible

AGYA Announces Partnership with the African Millennium Foundation

Taking the first step towards their goal of becoming organizationally and financially sustainable, the Amagezi Gemaanyi Youth Association (AGYA) is proud to announce their strategic partnership with the African Millennium Foundation.

This partnership means that AGYA is being fiscally hosted by the African Millennium Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is committed to helping effective grassroots organizations like AGYA become organizationally and financially sustainable.

All donations sent to the African Millennium Foundation on behalf of AGYA are eligible for tax exemption.
Supporters can send donations to:
African Millennium Foundation
c/o Amagezi Gemaanyi Youth Association (AGYA)
468 North Camden Drive
Beverly Hills, California 90210

Donations should be made payable to "African Millennium Foundation" and have "AGYA—Uganda" written in the memo line of the check or money order.

Within 10 business days, the African Millennium Foundation will send you a letter confirming the receipt of your tax-deductible donation.

"AMF recognizes that countless effective grassroots organizations are limited in their ability to provide outreach and services because they lack the organization and infrastructure that are necessary to make a lasting impact. I am thrilled that AGYA is among the organizations that have the honor of partnering with the African Millennium Foundation, an organization that has a proven track record of supporting and implementing successful, sustainable projects throughout the continent of Africa." beams AGYA Co-Founder, Divinity Barkley.

Within the next 90 days, AGYA plans to submit an application for 501(c)(3) tax exempt status in the United States. The 501(c)(3) application process can take as long as six months, but during the interim, AGYA will be accepting tax-deductible donations through the partnership with AMF.
