Workplace Giving

Many companies have a charitable payroll deduction program, if your employer offers a workplace-giving program please consider participating in that program, and consider directing your charitable giving to the American Friendship Foundation (AFF). 

Half the world’s population lives on less than $2 a day; there is pressing need for clean water, education, healthcare and economic opportunities. Workplace giving assists you in making a difference for those who need your support. Your company may offer hundreds of choices of supported charities, please help us get the American Friendship Foundation on that list. AFF assures you that your gift will reach the Project you designated.
