Gail Meaker Matching Gift Campaign - Met!

In an incredible show of gratitude for her AFS-USA experience, Gail Meaker (U.S. to Finland, 1973) left a generous bequest to the organization she loved. Gail’s generosity enabled AFS-USA to establish the Gail Meaker Matching Gift Campaign, and we are thrilled to announce that we have met this $125,000 challenge. We are grateful to the hundreds of donors who helped us respond to this special opportunity, which will help more AFS students have their own experience of a lifetime.

The World Needs More Global Citizens

Through supporting AFS programs, you foster transformative experiences that last a lifetime. Today’s exchange students are tomorrow’s changemakers: diplomats; thought leaders; influencers in the international business and nonprofit communities. Every new AFS Student is another global citizen in progress—an individual primed to help build a more just and peaceful world.

And the impact doesn’t stop with the students. Host families’ lives are transformed by students from across the globe and host communities gain greater cultural diversity. That’s The AFS Effect.
