Ways to Give

Your gift to AFS-USA today will truly make a world of difference.

AFS-USA’s ability to deliver life-changing intercultural experiences depends on the generous support of a community of thousands of committed returnees, volunteers, host families, parents, and many other friends across the U.S. and the world who share the goals and values of AFS.
